We went to an official ticketed shuttle launch that didn't happen after many hours due to the rain in Spain iirc. The countdown is long and interrupted. Things like that are always 'worth' going to see, but just be prepared that it may not happen.

Space X rocket launch "Targeted" for 0800 EST on the 18th January, so if it gets delayed for a couple of days, which is quite possible, you might be in luck...if not there's always you tube !

Managed to watch a rocket launch June last year. We booked a last minute hotel at cocoa beach as it was due to launch 11pm, glad we did as it was postponed until 2am so we went back to bed for a few hours.
Was amazing experience we wont forget, it lit up the whole sky and the sonic boom was so weird then we saw the boosters separate and come back down to Earth. The technology behind it all is crazy!

Just like Wayne managed to watch on the YouTube live stream very impressive.
Hopefully when they test with the astronauts it will be just as successful.
