Launch of the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket.

Launch of the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket.

Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida, USA.

This is the view of SpaceX Launch Complex 40 as seen from the ITL causeway. ITL is an acronym for "integrate-transfer-launch" but it seems that back in the Titan III days the road also was called the Titan causeway. The name still may be in use today - please drop me a line if you know.

The payload for this May 27, 2016 launch is the Thaicom 8 commercial communications satellite built by Orbital ATK.
