February 19th 2017 marked a major milestone in space exploration. For first time since the retirement of the NASA Space Shuttle Program, a space craft launched from the historic LC-39a launch pad. The rocket that lifted off was the first commercial rocket to ever launch from LC-39a – The SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. This was the first flight for SpaceX from their newly leased launch pad LC-39a and the first step towards “Red Dragon”, the manned capsule to be launched by SpaceX in 2018. NEOZAZ was on site to cover the launch.
Hear about the history of this launch site and the significance of this flight and all the launch and landing details in this special episode.
