Next week's manned spaceflight from Cape Kennedy will be historic...
Not only will it be the first time astronauts have lifted off into space from American soil since 2011, it will also be the first time they do so from atop a rocket since July 15, 1975 when Apollo lifted off for the final time.

Last Launch of Apollo

Forgive my ignorance, but how did we get people into space not atop a rocket for the last 45 years?

How old do you think the Soyuz we've been using last decade is? Shuttle was useless, outside of blowing up and getting budgets slashed.

Am planning to road trip down to get close to the launch. Space Center is closed but lots of parks to view from.

My grandpa worked for McDonnell Douglas 40+ years building space shite. We watched countless launches on the river side of us1... right next to where the miracle city mall was. Great free spot to watch from. Countless similar areas up and down the Indian river.

Which had a much better track record than the space shuttle.

So there's that.

I guess the solid boosters on the space station are not considered rockets?
