How to Get Tickets to Watch the SpaceX Rocket Blast Off from Kennedy Space Center
February 22, 2013 at 11:44 AM
So they’re not exactly launching any space shuttles out of Florida anytime soon, but the Kennedy Space Center is still plenty busy these days. In fact they’ve got so much going on that they’d love to have you swing by and check things out for yourself.
The next piece of space stuff departing earth is the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, and if things stay on schedule—and the weather cooperates—it’ll blast off on Friday, March 1. Those heading over to the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex can score a front row seat for the event, with viewing right along the NASA Causeway.
If you’re looking to set a reminder on your phone, it’s all scheduled to go
down up at 10:10am EST from Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
The latest mission is all part of the larger plan to visit the International Space Station in order to deliver supplies, as we can imagine those up in space have a dire need for additional dehydrated space ice cream sandwiches and other delicious delicacies.
Tickets to the launch viewing can be had for just $20 in addition to your regular admission to the Kennedy Space Center Visitor. However, those who prefer not to shell out anything additional can still check out the launch with regular admission, and they’ll even pipe in live mission control commentary so you know what’s going on at the launch pad.
