Moderators SeaDawg Posted February 16, 2017 Moderators Share Posted February 16, 2017 Back in July, 2011, my husband and I got up at 2 am to drive across Florida to see the last space shuttle launch from pad 39a at Kennedy space center. Saturday, a little after 10 am our time, SpaceX is scheduled to launch a shuttle supply rocket from this pad. First launch on that pad, I understand, since 2011. If you haven't seen a launch, it's really an amazing, awe inspiring experience. You don't have to be at the space complex to see it. Lots of people line the roads in a few miles radius. We never experienced it, but I've been told by camping friends that the view from jetty park campground is especially awesome. In the old days, we could often see the rooster tail from here on the west coast on a clear day, when the shuttles launched. I'll be watching the sky from the boat deck Saturday morning.
