- What else should I know about attending a launch?
- You should know that traffic will be horrendous immediately
after a launch. Bring a picnic no matter what time of day you
come out to watch the launch. Just make it a picnic breakfast, lunch,
or dinner as appropriate for the time of day. There can be up to 2-1/2
hours of launch delays before the rocket either launches, or "scrubs"
for the day. Bring coloring books and activity kits for children.
Look around your potential viewing site for bathrooms (which are
available at Space
View Park where the
I like to watch launches). Don't forget to bring sun tan
lotion, as well as bug & mosquito repellent.
