The Dragon Capsule is now headed to The International Space Station with a thousand pounds of science experiments and gear.

It's the first supply run for California-based Space-X, which has a $1.6 billion dollar contract with the space agency to re-supply the I.S.S.

The spacecraft is on track to reach the space station on Wednesday.

Lebanon, Virginia High School students sent an experiment on board the shuttle.
