CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — The Kennedy Space Center will be staying open late as the Space X Falcon 9 Crew-3 mission takes flight from Launch Complex 39A later this month.
NASA astronauts Raja Chari, Tom Marshburn and Kayla Barron and ESA (European Space Agency) astronaut Matthias Maurer will comprise the third crew rotation mission to the International Space Station (ISS) as part of NASA’s Commercial Crew Program.
The launch is set to lift off from Cape Canaveral on Oct. 30 at 2:43 a.m.
The Kennedy Space Center said launch viewing will be offered at the Banana Creek Launch Viewing Area at the Apollo/Saturn V Center — just four miles from Launch Complex 39A — and at the main visitor complex.
