Smart idea to keep a thread on this! I would love to see a launch someday. I think there was one when I was there but the cloud cover prevented us from seeing it.

Someone asked for updates for an upcoming trip and I’ve already forgotten who :grimacing::disappointed: so I thought I’d start a thread since I get notices for all the launches. :sunglasses:

Fun stuff. I haven’t toured Kennedy Space Center in awhile, but have great memories of it as a kid and adult. So exciting!

Fab, hopping on. DP is super keen to see something when we’re there in July. We’re just figuring out logistics to see if a KSC trip would fit.

The Canaveral attempt aims for 6:11 p.m. Sunday to take an Italian satellite into orbit from Space Launch Complex 40.

The payload is the COSMO-SkyMed Second Generation FM2 satellite run by the Italian Space Agency. It’s the second of four new satellites to replace an original four launched from 2007-2010 that provide defense, environmental and other observations for Italy and surrounding nations in the Mediterranean region.

If you missed Sunday’s launch it was bc it was scrubbed again.

Today, SpaceX lauched the Italian radar satellite on the fifth try.
“After bad weather and an errant cruise ship prevented launch on four previous days, SpaceX fired a Falcon 9 rocket into orbit Monday from Cape Canaveral with an Italian radar remote sensing satellite. Liftoff occurred at 6:11 p.m. EST (2311 GMT), and the Falcon 9 rocket’s first stage booster successfully returned to Florida’s Space Coast eight minutes later for landing.”

Tuesday, Feb 1, there will be another SpaceX launch at either 1:56pm or 5:13pm EST (not decided yet). That will be a Falcon 9 rocket with Starlink 4-7 satellites.
