Major Eastern Range and Western Range Launches
This chart lists all major NASA launches from 1990 through 2006, except those of the Space Shuttle. (Space Shuttle launches are listed on KSC Historical Report No. 1B (KHR-1B), “Space Shuttle Launches,” which is available from the Kennedy Space Center.) Most launches were from Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station (Eastern Range) in Florida, and Vandenberg Air Force Base (Western Range) in California. (S = successful. U = unsuccessful. P = launch successful, mission failure)
