Titusville, Florida

Day 560

     Drove to Titusville, Florida, which is on the Indian River, west of Merritt Island and the Kennedy Space Center, and a short distance from Cape Canaveral, to watch a rocket launch. 

     

     United Launch Alliance launched it’s SBIRS GEO-4 on an Atlas V rocket, the fourth Space Based Infrared System Geosynchronous satellite. The satellite’s purpose is to provide the U.S. military with early warnings of missile detection, so watch out Korea.
