I couldn't find a thread for this, but if I've missed it could a mod move this to the appropriate place.

Thought I'd look to see what we could see in terms of facilities here. So starting from:


I browsed around and there is surprisingly high resolution of the launch site and what looks to my untutored eye like a test stand.

There is other stuff scattered around but these seemed the most obvious

There is one launch site and two test stands.
Terraserver sat images

launch site, still without the catwalk
31.422N -104.757W, September 2016

old small test stand
31.394N -104.775W, September 2016

new large test stand,
31.429N -104.720W, March 2017

Planet has much more up to date images, but their resolution is to low compared to terraserver.

[Wasn't there a way to use attachments inline?]
