Falcon 9 v1.1 launch of CRS-6 (NASA/KSC) SpaceX appears ready to move Falcon 9 launches back to a pad damaged in an explosion last year. A NASA media advisory Thursday about a December launch of a Dragon cargo mission to the space station noted the launch would take place from Space Launch Complex 40, the first use of the pad since a September 2016 explosion during preparations for a static fire test damaged the pad and destroyed the Falcon 9 and its satellite payload. SpaceX has previously said it needed to shift launches currently taking place at LC-39A to pad 40 in order to prepare for the first launch of the Falcon Heavy.
