Launch Complex 39A
Crawlerway, Merritt Island, FL, USA
Launch Complex 39A at Florida’s Kennedy Space Center has been America’s primary on-ramp to space, hosting a dozen launches of the mighty Saturn V including all lunar surface expeditions under Program Apollo. Pad 39A then supported 82 missions of the Space Shuttle over the course of its three-decade career before NASA turned the complex over to SpaceX in 2014. LC-39A is now host to the company’s Falcon 9 and Falcon Heavy rockets.
