Recently some Roadtrippers were on the Space Coast and they wrote about something that even we didn’t know about. Supposedly, Launch Complex 34 is haunted.
The decommissioned launch pad, located in Cape Canaveral, Florida, along with its twin Launch Complex 37 were used by NASA to launch Saturn 1 and IBrockets as part of the Apollo program.
With only seven recorded launches, LC-37 is believed to be haunted by the ghosts of Command Pilot Virgil I. “Gus” Grissom, Senior Pilot Edward H. White II and Pilot Roger B. Chaffee, the three astronauts who perished during a pre-launch test on January 27, 1967 when the cabin of their Apollo I capsule was engulfed in flames and putting an abrupt halt to America’s space program.
According to Roadtrippers, some NASA employees and visitors to the abandoned launch pad have claimed to hear screams and an overall dark feeling when near the pad. And at one point NASA even stopped allowing visitors to the site due to “strange occurrences.”
LC-34 is viewable by the general public via a Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex bus tour. For more information, visit: http://www.kennedyspacecenter.com/tours/ksc-up-close-then-and-now-tour.aspx
