An unmanned cargo ship named for Ohio’s own John Glenn launched from Cape Canaveral Tuesday morning on its way to the International Space Station.

United Launch Alliance’s Atlas V rocket left the Florida launch pad about 11:11 a.m., and is expected to rendezvous with the space station Saturday morning.

More than 7,600 pounds of research components, crew supplies and hardware for the space laboratory is aboard.
