Florida's Space Coast is the gateway to space. Since the 50's, we've been on the forefront of American space exploration. We are home to NASA and the Kennedy Space Center. Companies like SpaceX, Boeing, United Launch Alliance, and Blue Origin call the Space Coast home and are launching rockets on a monthly basis. There are more rocket launches now than ever before! The next time you're visiting the Space Coast, you need to see, hear, and feel one of the most dramatic events on earth.

Artemis: The Next Giant Leap
The next era of space exploration is launching from the Space Coast. NASA's Artemis Program endeavors to take us back to the moon, construct Gateway - a lunar orbiting space station, and build the first habitable environment on the moon's surface. Artemis-1, the first mission of the program, is tentatively scheduled to launch in August 2022. There's so much to this exciting mission, and we can't wait to be a part of it. Check out the following link to learn more about Artemis, and plan your trip to witness history once again on Florida's Space Coast.
