I just got word from NASA that I have been selected to view the launch of Demo 1 next month at Kennedy Space Center!!!
This is the test launch before the manned launch in June. The manned launch will hold the first astronauts that SpaceX sends to the International Space Station!!! This is the project that Vice President Pence visited a couple of weeks ago.
So, I’m headed back to the Space Coast!!! And yes, I’ll be covering it all for weatherTAP social media and for ALL for you guys!
The email from NASA states that:
“During the event, you will be provided with the opportunity to:
- Tour NASA and SpaceX facilities
- Meet and interact with subject matter experts
- View and take photographs of Launch Complex 39A
- Meet fellow space enthusiasts who are active on social media
- Meet members of NASA’s social media team
- View the SpaceX’s uncrewed flight test of the Crew Dragon atop a Falcon 9 rocket for NASA’s Commercial Crew Program”
Did I mention that I’m SO EXCITED!!! Space Coast, here I come again!
