Here are some more pictures from the first half of our tour of the Kennedy Space Center. The giant doors on the Vehicle Assembly Building. It is the largest one story building in the world. The Crawler-Transporter hauls ass at an impressive one mile per hour. It consumes 296 liters of fuel per kilometre. The Apollo Launch Pad 39. The barbed wire fence is to keep out alligators! Liquid Nitrogen container for Launch Pad 39. There are actually three pads – 39A, 39B and 39C. This is one of the blast deflectors that sat in the pit below the launch pad during Apollo launches. The pit was also filled with water, not to cool things off but to absorb noise. The Orion Launch Pad. This will be used for the Orion manned Mars explorations planned for the early 2020s. A one-third size scale model of the Orion capsule. The actual control consoles used during the Apollo Moon Missions. They have been relocated for this display.
