The launch site for the Blue Origin rocket is in a remote location in the West Texas desert. According to the Blue Origin website, there are no public display areas on the site that are near the launch site. A portion of State Highway 54, which is in close proximity to the launch site, will be closed by The Texas Department of Transportation and it won’t allow spectators to crowd into the closed portion of the road to facilitate a smooth launch, the blog post says.
So, don’t forget to catch up on takeoff at 6.30pm sharp on July 20, 2021.
