The oldest standing launch structures at Cape Canaveral were imploded on Thursday (July 12), toppling gantries that supported 325 missiles and rockets. The two mobile service towers at Launch Complex 17 were used for Thor and Delta rocket launches from 1957 to 2011, including supporting some of the United States’ most notable satellite and robotic spacecraft missions. LC-17 will continue in use without the towers as the testing ground for commercial lunar landers developed by Moon Express.
