    Coordinates read from USGS topographic maps by Mark Pottenger.
    Seconds are uncertain because of size of launch complexes.
    Note: Cape Canaveral was originally a missile testing base in the
    50's. Some of the early complexes were erected to launch particular
    missile types (in many cases, the winged missiles that dominated
    US missile strategy before 1956), and then were torn down.
