Kennedy Space Center

  • Saturn 5 Rocket Base

    The business end of a decomissioned Saturn 5. Walking the length of this rocket takes minutes! 20 tons of fuel per minute would flow through here.

  • Command Module
  • Lightning Towers

    3 lightning towers designed to direct bolts away from the launch pad that they surround.

  • Motor Closeup

    The business end of this rocket looks more like a tangled mess of tubes and wires, but its a very advanced and complicated machine.

  • Facility Panorama (Click the full-size image for a better view)

    A panorma with a view of several facilities. The location this was shot from was formerly a public viewing area for space launches, but has been deemed too dangerous since then.

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