    On Saturday, a NASA resupply rocket took off from Virginia bound for the International Space Station (ISS) with 3.7 metric tonnes of cargo.

    The resupply mission is set to deliver food, equipment and materials for scientific research. There are currently six people on the ISS, among them Christina Koch and Jessica Meir, who last month made history by performing the first all-female spacewalk.
