NASA’s historic launch pad 39A roared back to life on Sunday (Feb. 12) as SpaceX conducted a test with its first Falcon 9 rocket to use the pad. The practice countdown, which culminated in a brief static fire, checked that the rocket and SpaceX’s modifications to the pad were ready to support a launch. The test marked a return to use for the Kennedy Space Center pad, the site of the first crewed launches to the moon, since the final space shuttle mission lifted off from 39A in July 2011.
