Kennedy Space Center
As SpaceX prepares to launch a new crew to the International Space Station from one pad at the Kennedy Space Center, it is starting work to upgrade another pad at Cape Canaveral as a backup.
Long the busiest space launch complex in the United States, Cape Canaveral and Kennedy extended their combined five-year streak as the busiest commercial, civil and military launch range in the world.
Brig. Gen. Schiess: “We have to improve turnaround both with new technology and processes."
Pence will give a speech early this afternoon to employees at KSC's Vehicle Assembly Building, and will also tour other facilities at the center.
