Press Release Body: Website Features Launch Updates from Florida's Space Coast
Cocoa Beach, FL - PlacesAroundFlorida.com has announced its increased coverage of launch news from Cape Canaveral and Kennedy Space Center. There are four launches scheduled for the remainder of 2008 and several scheduled in 2009 & 2010. NASA is planning to retire the space shuttle fleet in 2010 and this new Cape Canaveral Launch Schedule will give visitors to the Space Coast the launch info they need.
The space shuttle is not the only launch vehicle that lifts-off from Cape Canaveral. EELVs or Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicle such as the Delta 2, Atlas 5 and Delta 4 Heavy carries payloads such as GPS satellites and NASA payloads such as the GLAST, the Gamma-ray Large Area Space Telescope observatory into orbit well past the space shuttle retirement.
Tourist can also get a preview of Cocoa Beach and the surrounding area. Should a launch happen to get 'scrubbed' there are still many unique experiences to be had along the Space Coast. Known as the small wave capitol of the East Coast, Cocoa Beach is much more than 10.1 miles of sunny sand. Cocoa Beach has many shops, restaurants, and hotels as well as a pier jutting 800 feet out into the Atlantic Ocean, it is a popular place to view a launch.
All of the launches from Cape Canaveral are spectacular, especially night launches which light up the Space Coast to the awe of residents and visitors alike. There are many excellent places along the beaches and in local parks from which to view the launches. Launch dates change frequently so be sure to make your plans accordingly.
