At NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, various fluid interface connections have been installed at Launch Pad 39B. New system connections include chilled water supply-and-return and conditioned air that will be used to provide the mobile launcher with the necessary commodities during launch operations.
The Ground Systems Development and Operations Program office at Kennedy is overseeing upgrades and modifications to Pad B to support the launch of NASA’s Space Launch System heavy-lift rocket, which is under design, and new Orion spacecraft. The pads supported space shuttle launches for 30 years. Photo credit: NASA/Frankie Martin
