HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

A space station shipment is set to liftoff Monday.

NASA decided on Sunday to stick with the planned launch of the Space-X cargo ship, despite a critical computer outage at the space station.

The computer, located on the outside of the orbiting lab, stopped working on Friday. NASA gave the go-head for the station to accept the visiting craft.

Meanwhile, a spacewalk will be required to replace the bad computer. The unmanned dragon holds more than two tons of supplies and science experiments.
