SpaceX has officially signed a lease with NASA to use LC-39A. SpaceX will now be in charge to maintain the launch pad freeing NASA of the $1 million annual cost to maintain the pad.
- SpaceX will launch the Falcon Heavy from 39A next year
- They will keep the Shuttle era FSS( with modifications) on the pad to service the rocket
- Manned launches to the ISS will also launch from 39A
- SpaceX will build a hangar near 39A to assemble the rocket vs using the VAB
