- How can I get a car pass to see a launch "up close" at the Kennedy Space Center?
By writing at least one month in advance to
Kennedy Space Center, FL 32899.
Sorry, car passes are no longer available. You can
launch tickets from the KSC Visitor Complex in advance, park in their
parking lot, and be bussed to a good vantage point.
Close is relative, however. NASA VIP Guests
(visiting dignitaries, and astronaut's families) get passes for a viewing site
3 miles from the launch pad. The bus tickets get you on the causeway that
crosses the Banana River between the Kennedy Space Center and the Cape
Canaveral Air Force Station about 7 miles from the pad.
Park in Titusville is about 10 miles from Launch Complex 39.
