On January 27, SpaceX released a computer animation of a Falcon Heavy launch from Kennedy Space Center's Pad 39A.
This morning, I drove out past 39A to shoot some photos so you can see how this historic pad is being converted for its third generation of spaceflight.
I stayed outside the perimeter fence following the same route as the tour buses, so I figure I'm not photographing anything that isn't already being photographed by the public tours.
