Launch Pads

Before the mighty Saturn V rocket came on the scene at Kennedy Space Center, rockets and astronauts were launched from launch pads along the beach at Cape Canaveral. The pads are know as “slick” and then the number. For example, “Slick 17.” The “slick” comes from the acronym Space Launch Complex, or “SLC.” A great site for a virtual tour of CCAFS is Here. Thanks to Rob for permission to use a map from his site.
