Space Launch Complex 41
Launch Complex 41, Brevard County, FL, United States
Cape Canaveral Air Force Station Space Launch Complex 41 is currently used by United Launch Alliance for the company’s Atlas V rocket. The site opened for operations in 1965 and initially supported Titan III and Titan IV rockets, lifting a variety of payloads including the Helios probe to study the sun, the Viking Mars landers and the Voyager deep space probes.
Beginning to host Atlas V missions in 2002, SLC-41 continued to support interplanetary missions with the launches of the New Horizons mission to Pluto, sending Juno to Jupiter and launching Curiosity to Mars. Beginning in 2015, the pad underwent outfitting for human spaceflight as Atlas V is the chosen launch vehicle for Boeing’s Starliner spacecraft.
