How can I get a car pass to see a launch "up close" at the Kennedy Space Center?
By writing at least one month in advance to NASA, Mail Code PA-PASS, Kennedy Space Center, FL 32899.

Sorry, car passes are no longer available. You can purchase launch tickets from the KSC Visitor Complex in advance, park in their parking lot, and be bussed to a good vantage point.

Close is relative, however. NASA VIP Guests (visiting dignitaries, and astronaut's families) get passes for a viewing site 3 miles from the launch pad. The bus tickets get you on the causeway that crosses the Banana River between the Kennedy Space Center and the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station about 7 miles from the pad. Space View Park in Titusville is about 10 miles from Launch Complex 39.
