Cape Canaveral is a headland in Brevard County, Florida, United States, near the center of that state's Atlantic coast, 45 minutes east of Orlando by car. Known as Cape Kennedy from 1963 to 1973, it sits east of Merritt Island, separated from it by the Banana River. It is part of a region known as the Space Coast, and is the site of the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. Since many U.S. spacecraft are launched from both the station and the Kennedy Space Center on adjacent Merritt Island, the terms "Cape Canaveral," "Canaveral" or even "The Cape" have become metonyms that refer to both as the launch site of spacecraft.
In the continuity of Farscape, astronaut/scientist John Crichton embarked upon a mission to test out a theory with regards to using the planet's atmosphere as a means of increasing propulsion on a space craft. Manning the Farscape-1 space module, he launched from Cape Canaveral in 1999, but his ship was sucked through a wormhole and transported to another galaxy.
