- Flat Noobie presents this week’s #SpaceFanFriday. It’s a lengthier post, but a worthy one. 😄🚀In this series, you’ll see some pictures and a short video from Kennedy Space Center’s Launch Complex 39 (LC-39). 🚀The launch complex is comprised of 3 launch pads (39A, 39B, 39C), a Vehicle Assembly Buildling (VAB), a crawler transporter crawlerway, Orbiter Processing Facility buildings, a Launch Control Center, a news facility, and operational support buildings. 🚀The pictures in this post feature Lanch Pad 39B. Some fun facts about this launchpad: 🚀1️⃣ It was home to the Space Shuttle launches until 2011. 🚀2️⃣ In 2012, modifications began for the Space Launch System (SLS) rockets to use as a launchpad. 3️⃣ In 2014, NASA announced that Launch Pad 39B would be available to commercial users when it isn’t needed by the SLS rockets. 4️⃣ Picture 1 is Flat Noobie in front of one of three, 600 foot lightning towers on the launchpad (Central Florida is the lightning ⚡️ capital of North America). 5️⃣ Picture 2 is Flat Noobie in front of a flame trench. 🔥The refurbished flame trench and new flame deflector will be exposed to a peak temperature of 2,200 degrees F (1204.4C) during launch. 6️⃣ Picture 3 is a closer look at the flame trench. More than 96,000 bricks were installed on the walls of the flame trench during the refurbishment project. 7️⃣ The short video is what riding up to the launchpad would look like while on the crawlerway (Launchpad 39-A in the distance) 8️⃣ Picture comparison of what Launch Pad 39B looked like during the Space Shuttle launches vs. what Launch Pad 39B looks like presently. #thisposthasmanynumbers 😂 #nasasocial
