Description

I got a super special tour of the Sea Launch facilities. Absolutely amazing.

"The Ocean Odyssey is a self-propelled, semi-submersible drilling rig which was rebuilt as a mobile spacecraft launch platform and is currently used by Sea Launch for equatorial Pacific Ocean launches."

"In its current form, the Odyssey is 436 feet (133 m) long and about 220 feet (67 m) wide, with an empty draft displacement of 30,000 tons, and a submerged draft displacement of 50,600 tons. It has accommodations for 68 crew and launch system personnel — including living, dining, medical and recreation facilities. A large, environmentally-controlled hangar stores the rocket during transit, and then rolls it out and erects it prior to fueling and launch."
