Kennedy Space Center

  • Off topic - Stone Ball

    Instead of a boring fountain, the center had a map of the cosmos carved into a 2 ton granite sphere, suspended and slowly rotating on a water base. With enough force you could spin it a different direction!

  • Command Module
  • 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.

  • Space Shuttle Atlantis

    The retired Space Shuttle Atlantis. 'Murica!

  • Crawler

    One of NASA's two land crawlers, currently being outfitted for SpaceX missions.

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