The Spaceport Florida Authority has been issued a licence by the US Office of Commercial Space Transportation to operate a second launch pad at Cape Canaveral. The organisation, a state agency created to boost commercial space enterprises, will charge $300,000 a launch to use the new pad or the recently refurbished Trident 2 missile Pad 46 at the Cape. This launch pad will be inaugurated with the flight of the NASA Lunar Prospector orbiter in September.
