MISSION

SpaceX's SmallSat Rideshare Program offers designated Falcon 9 missions to small satellite entities. These missions, like the Transporter-2, allow deployment of numerous satellites into a Sun-Synchronous orbit. The first stage of the Falcon 9 is targeted to land at Landing Zone-1 on Cape Canaveral.

As part of our commitment to creating a Trusted Space for our guests and employees, measures and procedures are in place including limiting attendance, requiring face coverings indoors and on buses for all guests, accommodating social distancing, and increasing the frequency of sanitization.

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.
