Where is the Atlas 5 rocket launching from?

Live coverage of the countdown and launch of a United Launch Alliance Atlas 5 rocket from pad 41 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida. The mission will launch the commercial SES 20 and SES 21 communications satellites toward geosynchronous orbit.

Rocket Lab's main launch site is Launch Complex 1 in Mahia, Hawke's Bay, New Zealand. Rocket Lab Launch Complex 1 is the only private spaceport launching to low-Earth orbit in the world. Launch Complex 1 was opened in 2016 and Rocket Lab can do up to 120 Electron launches from the site every year.

SpaceX currently leases a launch pad at Vandenberg for Falcon 9 rocket missions, and ULA will continue using SLC-3 for the Atlas 5 and Vulcan rockets. Another small launch pad, SLC-8, has at least one more space launch on its schedule €” a Northrop Grumman Minotaur 4 rocket set to take off in 2023.

China Launches Long March-11 Rocket From Offshore Launchpad

China launched its Long March-11 rocket from an offshore launchpad carrying two satellites into the Lower Earth Orbit (LEO). By launching its first rocket from the sea, China has flexed its space power capabilities, which seem to be one step ahead of other countries.

Well that wasn't just your imagination, it was billionaire Elon Musk's spacecraft engineering company SpaceX's launching of the Falcon 9 rocket from Vandenberg Space Force Base in Santa Barbara County. The rocket, which lifted off from the base at 6:14:10 p.m. PDT, deployed 52 Starlink satellites into orbit.

The eyes of the world are on Cape Canaveral, Florida, where NASA is about to launch its Space Launch System (SLS) rocket into space for the very first time on 5 September. SLS is the most powerful rocket ever built.

The flight will take place at NASA's Armstrong Flight Research Center in California. Description: The Crew Flight Test will demonstrate the ability of Starliner and the United Launch Alliance's Atlas V rocket to safely carry astronauts to and from the International Space Station.

“As the Earth rotates on its axis, it creates positive kinetic energy. (1) The closer to the equator, the greater the kinetic energy is, which means a rocket launching from Cape Canaveral has to use 0.3 percent less energy.

Earth orbit. Flight into Earth orbit usually is achieved by launching a rocket vertically from Earth's surface and then tilting its trajectory so that its flight is parallel to the surface at the time that the spacefaring portion of the vehicle reaches orbital velocity at the desired altitude.

The current operational launch pads at the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station are: SLC-40 €” SpaceX, Falcon 9. SLC-41 €” ULA, Atlas V and Vulcan Centaur. SLC-46 €” Astra, Space Rocket 3.3.
