Watch Rocket Launches from Your Hotel
The last manned rocket launch from the Kennedy Space Center brought 100,000 visitors to the Space Coast to witness this historic event. There are now launches almost every week at the Kennedy Space center and the safest way to witness a rocket launch is from your hotel.
Rocket launches originate from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station which is part of the overall Kennedy Space Center. Three launch pads are currently used at the Air Force Station, depending on the entity launching the rocket.
All launch sites are located on a barrier island along Florida's east coast, about 50 miles due east of Orlando and known as Cape Canaveral. Cape Canaveral Air Force Station will soon be renamed Cape Canaveral Space Force Station.
Mars Launch July 30, 2020
NASA's Perseverance Mars rover launched on Thursday, July 30, on a seven month journey designed to search for astrobiological evidence of ancient microbial life on Mars, according to NASA. Perseverance launched at 7:50 a.m. Eastern Time (7:50 p.m. BJT) Thursday, on a United Launch Alliance Atlas V carrier rocket from Space Launch Complex 41 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.
Perseverance is scheduled to land on Mars in February 18, 2021 and is accompanied by a helicopter named Ingenuity that will be able to fly short distances from the rover.
On occasion there are launch delays caused by local weather or weather down range. Delays may also be generated by technical issues, but that is more infrequent than in the past. If you book your hotel for several days you will have the benefit of still being able to see a delayed launch.
Come for the Launch - Stay for the Beaches
Many of these hotels are on the beach so you can enjoy the ocean views and beach activities as you long as you want. There are few people on the beach early in the morning so it is a good time to take a walk or swim.
