Where to go to watch a rocket launch into space this summer

What do you usually take photos of on holiday?

A particularly artful pasta dish? Your other half attempting to line up their hand so it looks like they're touching that famous landmark (you jokers)? 

How about a rocket blasting off from Earth into the far-flung distances of space? Thought not - but it sounds pretty cool, right?

Space.com has put together a guide on all the upcoming launches that you'll be able to see in person, providing a photo opportunity with a difference. 

Grab your diary, check your passport is in date and pick from the best of the upcoming launches.
