VECTOR ROCKET ON DISPLAY AT KSC NOW

ABOVE VIDEO: A little about Vector Space Systems and what they like to launch. 

A Tucson, Ariz.-based aerospace company is planning to assemble and launch its rockets at Cape Canaveral, and interestingly enough, it looks like the firm has ties to SpaceX.

Vector Space Systems Inc. — an aerospace firm that builds 42-foot-tall rockets called Vector Rapide, or Vector-R for short — is planning to erect one of its rockets at Space Florida’s Launch Complex 46 on March 25 that will then be included in a brand new display at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex — the first commercial space rocket to be featured.

The display at KSC will be open to the public on March 27.

However, in addition to Vector-R being at the Launch Complex 46, company CEO Jim Cantrell will announce the intention of the company to use the launch facilities in the future, according to a news release from Space Florida.

Orlando Business Journal’s sister paper Phoenix Business Journal reported in January about Vector unveiling its Vector-R rocket, credited as being the world’s smallest satellite launcher rocket.

All of this activity is good news for Florida’s Space Coast as it can lead to more business opportunities for parts suppliers and other subcontractors in the area
