Default Kennedy Space Center

Outstanding pictures Paul. I really appreciate the older equipment since I grew up in the late 50's/60's era. Were you able to visit any of the old Saturn lauch pads? I heard they were really in a sad state of disrepair.

The Johnson Space Center just got their Saturn rocket back from being refurished and it is in an enclosed area now so the owls and other critters can't get into it.

Thanks for those pictures!!

Cruised more times than I can remember.

Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.

Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.

Thanks for the memories. I grew up there in the 60's; my dad and uncle worked at Cape Canaveral on the Saturn and Thor. It was a very special and tense time at each launch. I truly enjoyed touring it 1983 and show my sons where their grandpa worked since they never got to meet him. Thanks again Paul.

Thanks Paul for the pictures. We love the Kennedy Space Center. Hoping to go in January when I go to Florida with my parents to take my daughter back for her last semester.
