SpaceX Rocket Launch
A moment nearly six years in the making. Fire and flames are expected to return to the historic 39A launch pad. This weekend at Cape Canaveral the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket will be taking flight. It's the first launch from 39A since the Space Shuttle Atlantis in July of 2011. One of our staff members, Kristen Wagoner, was invited to the SpaceX launch happening this weekend down at Cape Canaveral and will be keeping everyone updated of the launch status and exclusive behind the scenes information on our Instagram Story (@904HappyHour).
This mission is the 10th of 14 resupply missions by SpaceX for NASA in support of NASA’s Commercial Resupply Services (CRS) program. Dragon will deliver food and supplies to the crew aboard the ISS. The Falcon 9 rocket’s reusable first stage will attempt a controlled landing on Landing Zone 1 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
Launch viewing opportunities for CRS-10 are available at Apollo/Saturn V Center and the main visitor complex with bleacher seating and launch commentary for $20.
