Kennedy Space Center Offering Up Close Viewing Packages For SpaceX Falcon Heavy USSF-44 Launch

It's been more than 40 months since the last Falcon Heavy launch and Kennedy Space Center are making sure you can spot to see the mighty rocket take flight, real up close!


A SpaceX Falcon Heavy Rocket will launch the USSF-44 mission for the U.S. Space Force, on Tuesday, November 1, 2022 at Kennedy Space Center.


The launch window is currently 9:40 a.m. – 10:11 a.m. ET.


The mission is expected to deploy two spacecraft payloads directly into geosynchronous orbit, one of which is the TETRA 1 microsatellite.


For this launch, the Falcon Heavy's two side boosters will land on landing zone 1 and landing zone 2 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station, and the core stage will be expended.


During this double landing, you will be able to see the boosters descend back towards the landing zones, like seen in the video below, and then experience a double sonic boom from their re-entry.
