Launch Complex 5 (LC5) was a launch site used for various Redstone and Jupiter launches. It is most well known as the launch site for NASA¡¯s 1961 suborbital Mercury-Redstone 3 flight, which made Alan Shepard the first American in space. It was also the launch site of Gus Grissom¡¯s Mercury-Redstone 4 flight. The Mercury-Redstone 1 pad abort, Mercury-Redstone 1A, and Mercury-Redstone 2, with chimpanzee Ham aboard, also used LC5. A total of 23 launches were conducted from LC5: one Jupiter-A, six Jupiter IRBMs, one Jupiter-C, four Juno Is, four Juno IIs and seven Redstones. The first launch from the complex was a Jupiter-A on July 19, 1956 and the final launch was Gus Grissom¡¯s Liberty Bell 7 capsule on July 21, 1961.
