Cape Canaveral Air Force Station Space Launch Complex 40 is located on the north end of Cape Canaveral, Florida; currently used by SpaceX for the company’s Falcon 9 rocket. The complex saw its first launch in 1965 with the maiden flight of the Titan IIIC.

The complex was leased to SpaceX in 2007 and supported the historic first orbital launch of a private firm.
