One of the most dramatic events
With more launches happening now than ever before, now is the time to witness a rocket launch from Florida’s Space Coast. Rocket launches are a unique and spectacular sight: booming from the tip of Cape Canaveral as it rumbles into the cosmos above. It’s an exhilarating experience that you’ll never forget.
