NASA-KSC NEWS RELEASE
Posted: January 21, 2001
Anyone is welcome to make a request, including members of the general public worldwide, educators, and representatives from groups or organizations wishing to attend the launch together.
Only requests for passes for the following Space Shuttle missions currently targeted for launch in the year 2001 are being accepted:
See our launch schedule for liftoff dates.
Since the number of vehicle passes is limited, requests will be accepted on a first come first served basis. All requests should be submitted in writing to:
Car Pass Request
Letter and postcard requests are allowed. No e-mail or telephone requests will be accepted.
The request must be for one mission only. The mission must be specified in the request letter. The request must also specify which of the following category of vehicle pass is required: car, motor home, bus, or disabled.
Only those selected will be notified by mail. The passes will then be mailed to the recipient's address approximately three weeks prior to the launch. Only one request per person will be honored. Only one pass will be issued per request.
Because of the limited number of passes available, only one (1) request per household or address will be honored each calendar year. This policy will apply to all future Space Shuttle missions. Requests for passes for missions launching after the year 2001 will not be honored at this time.
