Watch a Launch in Titusville

Titusville has some of the best views of rocket launches from the Kennedy Space Center & Cape Canaveral Space Force Station.


USSF-8

Launch Time
Friday, January 21, Window TBD

Rocket
ULA AtlasV 511

Location
SLC-41, Cape Canaveral Space Force Station, Florida

Mission Details
ULA will launch two identical satellites for the Space Force directly to a geosynchronous orbit (22,300 miles above the equator). These satellites are a part of the Geosynchronous Space Situational Awareness Program (GSSAP). GSSAP-5 and GSSAP-6 will be onboard. This launch will be the first and only Atlas V to fly in a 511 configuration (5 Meter Fairing, 1 SRB, and 1 RL-10 Engine).

CSG-2

Launch Time
January 27th @6:11pm EST

Rocket
Space Falcon 9

Location
SLC-40, Cape Canaveral SFS, Florida, USA

Mission Details
COSMO-SkyMed second generation (Constellation of Small Satellites for Mediterranean basin observation) or CSG is an Earth observation program of the Italian Space Agency (ASI) to replace the first generation COSMO-SkyMed system.
For the second generation, the COSMO-SkyMed constellation has been reduced from four to two spacecraft. The satellites are improved versions of the original design. They utilze an improved version of the Prima Bus. The CSG-SAR (COSMO-SkyMed Second Generation Synthetic Aperture Radar) is also an improved version of the first generation X-band SAR system. The contract was signed in September 2015.
The satellites will operate in the same circular sun-synchronous dawn-dusk orbit as the first generation satellites with a nominal altitude of 619 km and an inclination of 97.86º. The satelites operate in the same orbital plane.


Starlink Group 4-7

Launch Time
January 29th Window TBD

Rocket
Space Falcon 9

Recovery

Droneship: Currently Unknown

Location
LC-39A, Kennedy Space Center, Florida, USA

Mission Details
SpaceX will launch a batch of Starlink satellites for their high-speed low earth orbit internet constellation.


GOES-T

Launch Time
Wednesday, March 1, 4:38-6:38pm EST

Rocket
ULA AtlasV

Recovery
Landing Zone 1

Location
SLC-41, Cape Canaveral Space Force Station, Florida

Mission Details
GOES-T will be the third in a new line of upgraded weather satellites for the NOAA. The GOES series of satellites sit in geostationary orbit to monitor weather systems as they develop.


Artemis 1

Launch Time
March 2022

Rocket
Space Launch System – SLS

Location
LC-39b, Kennedy Space Center, Florida

Mission Details
NASA’s maiden launch of the Space Launch System will carry an Orion spacecraft around the Moon and back to validate the launch and life support systems. If successful, this mission will put NASA on a path to return humanity to the Moon, this time to stay and land the first woman and person of color on another celestial body.


AX-1

Launch Time
March 31st

Rocket
SpaceX Falcon 9

Location
LC-39A, Kennedy Space Center, Florida

Mission Details
Axiom’s first private mission to the International Space Station will launch on a SpaceX Falcon 9 and use the Dragon spacecraft. The spacecraft will carry a former NASA astronaut and now Axiom VP as the commander and three highly successful businessmen to enjoy low Earth orbit and conduct their experiments on the station. The most notable member of the crew, Eytan Stibbe, will be the second Israeli to go to space. The first was Ilan Ramon, who perished in the Columbia Disaster.

Crew
Michael López-Alegría (Commander, Axiom)
Larry Connor (Pilot, Axiom)
Mark Pathy (Mission Specialist, Axiom)
Eytan Stibbe (Mission Specialist, Axiom)
