Back form a Tour of KSC

I just got back from a week trip to Palm Bay Florida and while there we went to the Kennedy Space Center and took a tour.
Anyone that gets the chance take this tour!!! What a great time we had. Got to go on a shuttle launch sim. Watch alot of films on the space shuttles and the I.S.S. some even in 3d. Toured the place where they are making modules for the I.S.S. to be delivered. Got a few good pics of the shuttle and both launch pads. My son got a collectors coil of Apollo 11. I also took pics Buzz Aldrin, Alan Sheaperd, Neil Armstrong and all crew members of Apollo 1. Took pics of the mars land rover and one of the Apollo rockets.

NASA's Shuttle Endeavour Set for Move to Vehicle AssemblyBuilding

Space Shuttle

In preparation for the STS-118 mission to the International Space Station, NASA is scheduled to rollover space shuttle Endeavour from its hanger, the Orbiter Processing Facility, to the Kennedy Space Center's Vehicle Assembly Building on Monday, July 2.

In the Vehicle Assembly Building, crews will mate Endeavour to its external fuel tank and twin solid rocket boosters.

The next milestone for Endeavour is the 3.4-mile rollout to Launch Pad 39A, planned for July 11. Endeavour is targeted for launch in early August. During the 11-day mission to the station, Endeavour's crew of seven astronauts will add the Starboard 5 (S5) segment to the right side of the station's backbone, or truss, deliver 5,000 pounds of supplies and conduct repairs.

STS-118: Build the Station. Build the Future

Space Shuttle[img=120x140]http://www.nasa.gov/images/content/180710main_sts118s001_small.jpg[/img] Like all shuttle missions, STS-118 is about the future: putting the International Space Station a step closer to completion and gathering experience that will help people return to the moon and go on to Mars. But this mission also will see a two decade-old dream realized and a vision of inspiration completed. Twenty-two years after first being selected as Christa McAuliffe's backup in the Teacher in Space Project, Barbara Morgan will strap into space shuttle Endeavour as a fully-trained astronaut. She is one of five mission specialists in the seven-member crew.
