Upgrades Completed at Launchpad

Y2:D206 – KSC administrators announced that as of today (6/29/02) the last of the improvements to the center’s launch pad have been completed.

The new facilities added are intended to accommodate the soon to be unveiled Sarnus family of launchers as well as adding the ability to accommodate any other new designs that might conceivably be invented for at least the foreseeable future.

These include updates and enhancements to the pad its self to support larger and heavier rockets, enlarged water storage for suppression systems, and tanks and plumbing for a wide variety of fuels.
