Space Launch Now started as a weekend project in 2016 for Caleb Jones as none of the current Android apps for Launch Library were still maintained. After several weeks of development and a few posts to Reddit and Facebook a small but strong community started to build of spaceflight enthusiast. We now have several active staff members and a small team of volunteer librarians and translators helping to bring the most accurate spaceflight data to phones, tablets and computers around the world.
