John F. Kennedy Space Center (KSC) is NASA’s Spaceport Technology Center. From KSC astronauts are sent to the moon and someday will be sent to Mars and beyond.
These days astronauts are being launched into low Earth orbit aboard the Space Shuttle to build the new International Space Station and perform experiments to improve our life on Earth.
KSC is the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) center of excellence for launch and payload processing systems as well as the lead center for acquisition and management of expendable launch vehicle services and payload carriers.
Located at the Cape Canaveral Spaceport in Florida, it handles the checkout, launch and landing of the Space Shuttle and its payloads. Because KSC is the starting point of all U.S. human space flights, it continues to draw worldwide attention.
