A group of Chicago Public School students gathered to watch Sunday night's launch of the privately built shuttle Space X Dragon.

The group from Skinner West Elementary has a micro-gravity science experiment on board.

They are one of 11 student groups nationally to have their experiment ideas chosen for inclusion in the mission.

Space X Dragon lifted off from NASA's Kennedy Space Center and is carrying supplies to the International Space Station.
