Cape Canaveral Air Force Station Rocket Launch Invitation

Posted: August 30, 2017

CSBR Members, you and your guests are invited to attend a rocket launch from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida, scheduled for Thursday, September 28.  To ensure you are able to attend all pre-launch and launch activities, we recommend you arrive in Florida by the evening of September 26.  There will be a reception that evening, with tours and activities on September 27.  The launch is scheduled for September 28.  You may depart on September 29, though if the launch is delayed, you may wish to stay for any reattempts.  All dates and activities are subject to change.

IF YOU PLAN TO ATTEND:  Register not later than Friday, September 15 here:  Launch Registration 

No action is required if you do not wish to attend this launch.  If you won this invitation as part of a charity auction, and are not able to attend, you will automatically stay on the list to be invited to future launch opportunities.  That also applies to everyone else who received this invitation.  You will stay on the list for future opportunities as well. 

The draft schedule of activities is:

Tuesday, September 26:  Travel to Florida, Evening Welcome Reception

Wednesday, September 27: Check In, Mission Briefing, Special Tours and Activities

Thursday, September 28: Launch Viewing, Post Launch Reception

Friday, September 29:  Return Travel

As you consider travel arrangements, the closest airport is the Orlando (MCO), though several others are within a few hours drive.  You will need to rent a car or make carpool arrangements for local ground transportation.  Any hotel, VRBO, Airbnb, etc. in the Port Canaveral/Cocoa Beach area is fine.  Locations closest to Port Canaveral may be the most convenient.  We are often asked for recommendations for where to stay and that is our recommendation. J

Travel, lodging, and expenses are the responsibility of each individual.  Some courtesies such as receptions and local bus transportation may be provided subject to applicable laws, policies, and ethics regulations. 

For government attendees and any others subject to limitations, or for those who otherwise want to pay, the value of the two bus rides is estimated to be around $25 each and each reception is around $20 per person.  Exact costs and sponsors will be provided in advance or at the events.  We are able to take payment and receipts are available upon request.  Please consult any law or policy that applies to you and you may wish to consult with your legal/ethics office.

Please note launches can be postponed up to the very last moment due to inclement weather, technical delays, or other unforeseen factors.  When you make your travel arrangements, you may wish to have refundable reservations or alternate plans at any of the nearby attractions or resorts in case the launch is delayed or cancelled.  Additionally, if the launch is delayed, depending on the reason for delay, another attempt may be made over the following days if you wish to stay and try to attend a launch re-attempt.

We cannot provide much information about the spacecraft as the mission is for the National Reconnaissance Office, though we are still planning a number of briefings and VIP tours and experiences.  The NROL-52 mission will be launched on a United Launch Alliance Atlas V Rocket in a “421” configuration.  That is, the rocket has a four-meter fairing, two solid rocket boosters and a single-engine Centaur upper stage.  United Launch Alliance (ULA) is a 50-50 joint venture owned by Lockheed Martin and The Boeing Company.  ULA program management, engineering, test, and mission support functions are headquartered in Denver, Colorado.   If you want an idea of what an Atlas V launch looks like, check out these video from prior launches:  MAVEN Launch and NROL-61 Launch 

For questions, or if you need further information about anything in this email, please contact Joe Rice at [email protected] or 720-251-3346. 

Thank you to our hosts and sponsors for making activities around the launch possible!
