NHRC Launches are held on the beautiful Johnson Space Center grounds. Please be aware that this area is SECURITY-RESTRICTED (similar to a military base). If you are new to NHRC launches and JSC, you must have your name added to the NHRC Security Access list prior to arriving.

Once your name has been added, simply pull up to the guard gate on Saturn Lane, tell them you are heading to the Rocket club launch and show them some form of official ID (Drivers License).

After entering the gate, drive past the mighty Saturn 5 and turn left into the driveway immediately after the first building (this is building 14 and is approximately 1/4 mile from the guard house). Follow the driveway around to the back of the building and continue onto the driveway as it continues out into the field. Two groups fly in the field, R.C. airplanes and rockets.
