For Lease: NASA Launchpad


Need to launch a satellite? You’re in luck.

NASA has put one of two launchpads at the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral up for lease. Since the shutdown of the space-shuttle program, NASA has been shrinking its operation. According to Reuters, “NASA’s Florida spaceport has demolished or transferred to commercial users more than 150 shuttle facilities, reducing its footprint by 1 million square feet (93,000 square meters).” A heads-up if you’re interested: NASA would prefer at least a five-year contract.

No word yet on when the ad will be up on Craigslist.
