SpaceX Falcon Heavy USSF 67

Jan 15, 2023 05:00 PM Launch Complex 39A • Kennedy Space Center


A SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket will launch the USSF 67 mission for the U.S. Space Force. The mission will launch the Space Force's second Continuous Broadcast Augmenting SATCOM, or CBAS 2, communications satellite and the Long Duration Propulsive ESPA 3A, or LDPE 3A, rideshare satellite hosting multiple experimental payloads.

For this launch, the Falcon Heavy's two side boosters will land on landing zone 1 and landing zone 2 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station, and the core stage will be expended. During this double landing, you will be able to see the boosters descend back towards the landing zones, like seen in the video below, and then experience a double sonic boom from their re-entry.



The purchaser understands that launches may occur at any date/time or can be delayed/scrubbed with little notice due to weather or technical issues. If your travel plans are not flexible, carefully consider this scrub policy before purchase. The visitor complex is not responsible for the launch schedule.
