Wherever you are, we want you to join in the celebration with a rocket launch. Our event is part of the U.S. Space & Rocket Center’s Global Launch and is open to anyone who wants to participate, whether your group is large or small, or even a party of one. On launch day, snap a picture or two and share on Twitter, Instagram, and Youtube. Be sure to include #GlobalRocketlaunch so you can add your launch to the global count.
