Rocket Launch: NET October 2018 | SpaceX Falcon Heavy

NET October 2018 Kennedy Space Center LC-39A SpaceX Falcon Heavy


After a groundbreaking successful test flight, SpaceX’s new Falcon Heavy rocket is anticipated to launch again from Kennedy Space Center no earlier than October 2018.


Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex offers the closest public viewing of launches, as well as launch commentary, bleacher seating and access to visitor complex exhibits and attractions.

Launch Transportation Tickets are not yet available for this launch. If launch transportation and viewing opportunities become available through the visitor complex:

  • Tickets are sold as soon as possible after a confirmed date and time is announced.
  • Tickets may be purchased online under the VIP Launch Viewing tab on the ticket page if/when tickets are available.
  • As viewing locations are accessible from inside the visitor complex entrance only, you must also purchase a daily admission ticket or an annual pass in order to use Launch Transportation/Viewing Tickets. Ticket holders are transported by Kennedy Space Center buses from the main visitor complex to the available viewing areas located beyond NASA’s gates.
  • Launch Transportation Tickets are date and mission specific, and are not valid for other launches.

Helpful Links:

Availability of upcoming viewing opportunities is dependent upon the scheduled launch time and is subject to NASA and U.S. Air Force approval. Launch date, time, and viewing opportunities are subject to change. Launches can be affected by technical and mechanical issues as well as range operations and weather, either in advance or at the last minute.
