Kennedy Space Center

  • Entry

    Right at the entrance, we were greeted by an array of rockets used over the years. The specific names of all the models escape me, but the largest one is the legendary Saturn 5 model - the most powerful machine ever built by man.

  • A Pelican

    "What you lookin' at?"

  • Apollo Guidelines

    A list of mission status and abort codes from the Apollo era. View full size to read it.

  • Another Crawler

    Another one of NASA's land crawlers, hiding inside.

  • Seaside Bunker

    Looking out into the Atlantic, one of the main launch platforms would have been behind me. According to our guide this little bunker was used to house sensitive equipment for detecting electricity in the air, as lightning is a grave threat to launches.

Last November, I had the opportunity to visit the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, while visiting relatives living in the area.
