Kennedy Space Center
Launching the NASA vision! Welcome to NASA's John F. Kennedy Space Center (KSC), where our team launches the dream of exploring our Universe. KSC is the starting point for America's human space flights. On July 16, 1969, the eyes of the world were on the coast of Florida as the three astronauts of Apollo 11 began their journey to the Moon. Soon, the world's attention will once again return to Kennedy Space Center as NASA returns to the heavens. Open every day from 9 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. (except December 25 and certain launch days).
