KSC Pad 39A lease ceremony, April 2014 (NASA/KSC) NASA and SpaceX announced Monday that they have signed an agreement to lease Pad 39A at the Kennedy Space Center to SpaceX. The organizations said they have signed a 20-year lease for the pad, previously used by the Space Shuttle, and NASA selected SpaceX to begin negotiations for the lease late last year. SpaceX plans to use the pad for its Falcon Heavy rocket, with the first launch there as soon as early 2015. SpaceX will make some modifications to the pad to support the Falcon Heavy, but will retain some historic elements of the launch site.
