Other sites[edit]

Should there not be entries for the McGregor test site and the Hawthorne manufacturing plant and head office? -Arb. (talk) 17:44, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

Neither are currently in the template. One of the two, McGregor, has a Wikipedia article now (since the time you asked your question). You are welcome to be bold and add the other if you think it is both verifiable and notable. N2e (talk) 19:06, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

And what about the proposed private launch site be it Brownsville, the Cape or any of the other possibilities. -Arb. (talk) 17:46, 21 November 2012 (UTC)

This has been added to the template since the time of your question 14 months ago. N2e (talk) 19:06, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

Additional launch facility[edit]

NASA has selected SpaceX as the tenant for Kennedy Space Center Launch Pad 39-A, as sourced in that article. So that launch pad will need to be added to the template soon. However, it would probably be appropriate to leave it out of the template until such time as SpaceX and NASA have actually negotiated the lease contract, which is not yet complete.

This will be SpaceX' 3rd or 4th active launch site, depending on if it comes on line prior to the SpaceX private launch site, or after. We could speculate, but SpaceX has not announced the dates for either KSC 39-A or the Private Launch Site becoming operational. N2e (talk) 19:02, 5 February 2014 (UTC)
