Kennedy Space Center: New tour hits Launch Pad 39-A

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

For the first time, Kennedy Space Center visitors will have the option of touring Launch Pad 39-A, where most space-shuttle missions and the six Apollo missions to the moon began.

Beginning Friday, the Launch Pad Tour will be available after entry to the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in Brevard County. It’s the third tour introduced this year, part of the KSC’s 50th anniversary celebration.

On the new tour, guests will be transported from the visitor complex to inside the perimeter security fence to Launch Pad 39-A.

“Visitors will travel the same route as astronauts to the launch pad, so they can imagine being an astronaut,” says Bill Moore, chief operating officer of Kennedy Space Center Vistor Complex.

At 39-A, guests will get off the bus for photo ops of the 350-foot fixed structure and other aspects of the launch pad, including the flame trench, propellan storage containers and water tanks that service the noise-suppression system.

The tour then does a drive-by of Launch Pad 39-B, the starting point for Skylab missions and many space-shuttle missions. This area is being remodeled for NASA’s new Space Launch System heavy-lift rocket, which will carry astronauts in the Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle, and to accommodate commercial spacecraft.

The Launch Pad Tour and the tours that go to the Vehicle Assembly Building and to the Launch Control Center will continue through the end of the year. Each tour costs $25 ($19 for ages 3-11) in addition to admission to the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.

The Kennedy Space Center is a major central Florida tourist destination and is approximately one hour’s drive from the Orlando area and our villa making it the ideal base from which to explore central Florida.

KSC Up-Close: The Vehicle Assembly Building Tour

Sunday, July 22nd, 2012
Kennedy Space Center Up-Close Tour – Available for a Limited Time with Limited Space!

For the first time since 1978, guests visiting the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex who purchase the Kennedy Space Center Up-Close tour will have the rare opportunity to disembark their tour buses and tour inside the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB). Guests will see firsthand where monstrous vehicles were assembled for launch; as well as where the future is unfolding for our continued missions into space.

When inside the VAB, guests will be able to walk along the edge of the Transfer Aisle, used to move elements of rockets among the building’s four High Bays. Tour communicators and colorful signage will depict work that has gone on behind the 456-foot-tall high bay doors, such as work of the VAB’s two 325-ton bridge cranes used to lift the shuttle orbiters and mate them to their external tank and solid rocket boosters with pinpoint accuracy. Signage also shows prospective operations that will take place within the VAB for NASA’s newest space exploration program, Space Launch System, or SLS.

Other sites on the KSC Up-Close tour include the NASA Causeway, A/B Camera Stop and the Apollo Saturn V Center.

Please note: The VAB component of the KSC Up-Close tour is hoped to be offered through Summer of 2012. Details will be posted as they come available. The tour is $25 for adults and $19 for children ages 3-11, in addition to admission.
