Kennedy Space Center – Post 1 of 2

My friend and I took a break from our 4-day visit to Universal Studios theme park in Orlando in January 2018 to make a day-trip to Kennedy Space Center out on the coast.

These are the engines which launched the Gemini spacecraft:

This is the actual Apollo 14 Command module:

This is a model of America’s newest heavy-lifting rocket, the Space Launch System (or SLS):

This is a Dragon capsule which is used primarily to carry cargo to the International Space Station:

After visiting the various indoor and outdoor displays at the Visitor Center we boarded a bus to visit other areas of the facility (noteably Mission Control and drive-bys of the “crawler” which carries rockets to the launch pad and the launch pads themselves).

If you are at all interested in the space program I highly recommend a visit to KSC!
