SpaceX launched a cargo ship to the International Space Station Tuesday at 4:10 p.m. from Florida’s Cape Canaveral.

The Falcon 9 rocket and Dragon capsule were scheduled for liftoff Monday, but the launch was postponed because of weather and, as creator Elon Musk put it, the fact that the “moon was in the way.”

One of the deliveries—in what MarketWatch reports as SpaceX’s sixth resupply mission—is an espresso machine for Italian astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti.

The Dragon is packed with 4,300 pounds of goods.
