Since we are planning to make this our last trip to Florida for a long, long time we decided to take the opportunity and come over to the Space Center again. We are so glad we made that decision as it was a wonderful place to re-visit. Our ticket was an all-inclusive deal which gave us admission for the bus tour, IMAX theater, Shuttle Launch Experience, space artifacts, and the entire grounds and displays in the visitor complex. Bus tours begin at 10:00 and we were ready to get started. (click on photo for a larger view)
Launch pad 39 A and the crawler way. The shuttle is moved from the Vehicle Assembly Building to the launch pad by a crawler that moved 1 mile per hour. It takes from 6 to 8 hours to get the shuttle in place for launch.
Below is the "crawler".
We spent over 6 hours at the center and did not see everything. It is worth the $40.00 ticket price and I would recommend visiting the Kennedy Space Center if you are ever in the Cape Canaveral area.
Until next time.....so long for now!
