Launcher Pacifica is a self-propelled semi-submersible mobile spaceflight launch platform converted from a mobile oil drilling platform in the 2010s. The vessel is currently used for equatorial Pacific Ocean launches. Not to be confused with Pacifica, the sea-faring floating city founded in the 2030s.
