Blue Origin could bring long-dormant launchpad to life

Blue Origin has asked permission to build at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station on a launch pad that has been dormant since the 1960’s.

Billionaire Jeff Bezos’ company wants to build on Space Launch Complex 11, which hasn’t seen a launch since 1964, and the adjacent Space Launch Complex 36.

The plan was revealed in permit applications with the St. Johns River Water Management District, which oversees permitting on that land.

The permits hint at a plan to test rockets onsite while launching from the launch pad.
