Visiting the Kennedy Space Center

Kennedy Space Center is a major tourist destination in Central Florida and just an hour drive from Orlando. It is one of ten major NASA field centers and a launch site of the United States.
Since 1968, it has been used for every NASA human space flight. Kennedy Space Center is located on Merritt Island, Florida and would you be amazed if I tell you, we live just 15 minutes away from KSC? Yes we are. All three photos below are exhibit display at the Rocket Garden area.
The first area to explore when you visit the Kennedy Space Center / KSC is the Visitor Complex, which has different exhibits, artifacts, displays and attractions on the history and future of human as well as robotic spaceflight. All bus tours of Kennedy Space Center start from this area. It offers public tours of the center and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

Kennedy Space Center is a big property and is a wildlife sanctuary therefore; Bald Eagles, American alligators, wild boars, Eastern Diamondback rattlesnakes, Florida panthers and Florida manatees are just taking refuge in the area.

The complex also includes the separate Apollo/Saturn V Center, north of the VAB and the United States Astronaut Hall of Fame (photo below), six miles west near Titusville.

Check out the tag topic below this post to see more photos of Kennedy Space Center. Thanks for stopping by. I will be seeing you in Kennedy Space Center soon right?

How nice to live just 15 minutes from the Kennedy Space Center! If I did live near there I certainly would go and see what it has to offer. And I do remember the first time it was used for human flight in 1968 (I was 18 at the time)--

I would love to take my kids here someday. I am amazed at the technology mankind has developed that allows us to travel outside our own atmosphere. I think the kids would find it fascinating.

I've always wanted to visit the Space Center (particularly after watching the movie Space Camp a million times as a kid). Never made it but will have to go with my boys.

Wow, that is really amazing! I only saw this on television but going there in person and explore the place will surely be fun and educational as well.
