It also served as the launch site from which the Atlas missile was first used as a satellite-launch vehicle. Launch Complex 11 supported the launch of Atlas-Score on December 18, 1958, in which the entire Atlas missile body entered Earth-orbit and broadcast a Christmas message from President Dwight D. Eisenhower. The launch complex is currently abandoned.
