Our Launch Team



Hi! I'm Abby Dickes. I am NanoRacks' Marketing and Communication Manager (yes, that's me with Bill Nye!), and I am also your main point of contact for your myLAUNCH registration and launch attendance.

I'm so excited to work with you to make your launch viewing the experience of a lifetime. There really is nothing more special than watching a rocket (with your payload!) leave the planet. You're in for a real treat.

If you have any questions along the way, please don't hesitate to send me a message. My email is adickes@nanoracks.com.

Be sure to fill out all required details in the registration form, and scroll down to learn more about the launch site and how to plan your trip. When you register, you will be getting an email from me as well with important information.

Go Cygnus!

How Do I Get To Kennedy Space Center?



If you are flying in for the launch, it is EXTREMELY important that you book a flight with little or no change fees. Launches often slip, and those changes are out of our control. There is always a chance you will need to change flights if a launch date changes, and we want to make sure you can join us no matter what! 

Note: DreamUp and NanoRacks do not compensate for flight costs, change fees, or other travel expenses.
