The NASA environmental report of August 2019 (https://netspublic.grc.nasa.gov/main/20190801_Final_DRAFT_EA_SpaceX_Starship.pdf) provides a 2D view of of the planned changes to 39A for Starship. A launch animation, provided by SpaceX shows the SuperHeavy/Starship stack on a raised platform, but lacks any existing 39A components to derive a relative height reference. (


Important image from the PDF

Given the distance between the old and new towers and the need to share infrastructure, has anyone heard if the bases of the rockets are at the same height?

  • $\begingroup$ Since they are building a fairly large launch mount starting at a lower level, it is unclear how tall it is going to be when complete and thus the relative elevations when complete. May take time to answer this one. $\endgroup$
