CAPE CANAVERAL, FL (WWBT) -

NASA's SpaceX Rocket successfully launched Friday afternoon, despite a critical computer outage at the International Space Station.

The unmanned rocket is carrying a new spacesuit as part of 5,000 pounds of supplies from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.

There was concern about the failure of one of the backup computers because it plays a role in helping the rocket dock at the space station. but NASA says it has found a way to get around the problem.
