Progress! SpaceX Made Huge Progress On KSC Orbital Launch Tower for 1st Orbital Launch + Space News



The fourth of nine sections for SpaceX’s Starship launch pad gantry was moved to Launch Complex 39A Wednesday night for stacking, following the emplacement of the tower’s first three segments last month. The transfer of the five-story-tall structure from SpaceX’s construction site at the company’s Roberts Road facility to pad 39A stretched about 7 miles and was completed around nightfall Wednesday. The gantry section rode a 96-wheel self-propelled transporter for the road trip to pad 39A.

A large crane moved into position over the tower segment Thursday morning to begin lifting it into place on the tower. Now, the tower has 4 segments stacked atop successfully, and there are 5 more segments to come!

  1. With the second Orbital launch going up reminds me of the one line from the movie Contact

    Why build one when you can have two at twice the price?

  2. The improved tower has all the internal plumbing and fixtures all ready built in I hope.
