Witnessing a live rocket launch is a jaw-dropping, bucket-list experience.

The Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex offers the closest public viewing of a rocket launch with live launch commentary from space experts.

Viewing locations are within a few miles/kilometers of the launch pad, so you can see and feel the spacecraft

lift off from Earth under the full power of powerful rocket engines.

The Visitor Complex can offer launch tickets for rocket launches.

Tickets for these launches are usually available in addition to daily admission and may be purchased ahead of time or days if viewing locations are not sold out.

Review the event calendar for upcoming launches and opportunities to see their launches.

It is one of the most incredible places you will ever visit in your entire life.

Seriously, it's definitely worth the bucket list! Kennedy Space Center, as the name suggests

is the center of NASA's major space activities, including launches and space-related events.
