Description:
Launch Complex 19 (LC-19) is a deactivated launch site on Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida used by NASA to launch all of the Gemini manned spaceflights. It was also used by unmanned Titan I and Titan II launch vehicles.

LC-19 was in use from 1959 to 1966, during which time it saw 27 launches, 10 of which were manned. The first use of LC-19 was on August 14, 1959. This was a Titan I and the mission was declared a failure after the rocket exploded while still on the pad. The first successful launch from LC-19 was also a Titan I, on February 2, 1960. The launch complex was closed following the departure of Gemini XII, on November 11, 1966.

The Gemini white room from the top of the booster erector has been partially restored and is on display at the Air Force Space & Missile Museum located at Complex 26.

The degradation of Pad 19 has been documented at http://pad19.org by a docent of the CCAFS Space and Missile Museum at http://spacemuseum.org.
