Blue Origin Is Headed to Florida
Blue Origin Selects Florida’s Space Coast for Production and Launch Site, SpaceRef Business
“Blue Origin has selected the Florida Space Coast to locate a new manufacturing facility and signed an agreement to use Launch Complex 36 (Pad B) to launch their new reusable rocket which they expect to fly from the Cape by 2020.”
Marc’s note: Launch Complex 36, Pad A, is being used by Moon Express.
Blue Origin: Coming to the Space Coast
“One of the unique things about our Florida operations is that we aren’t just launching here, we’re building here. At Exploration Park, we’ll have a 21st century production facility where we’ll focus on manufacturing our reusable fleet of orbital launchers and readying them for flight again and again. Locating vehicle assembly near our launch site eases the challenge of processing and transporting really big rockets.”
