For the first time in more than 30 years, NASA is allowing visitors inside the Launch Control Center.
Get up close to where NASA directors and engineers supervised all of the 152 launches including the space shuttle and Apollo programs.
Visitors have not had access to the LCC since the late 1970s, during the period after the Apollo and Skylab programs ended and before the first space shuttle launch in 1981.
Step into Firing Room 4 and see first-hand the computer consoles where engineers monitored the computerized launch control system’s thousands of system checks every minute leading up to launch. See the main launch countdown clock and large video monitors. Enter the “bubble room,” with its wall of interior windows through which the Kennedy Space Center management team viewed all of the proceedings below.
The LCC Tour is led by a trained space expert, giving visitors an insider’s view of the space program from launch preparation to liftoff. The tour also includes drive-by views of Launch Pad 39 and culminates at the Apollo/Saturn V Center, where visitors can resume the regular tour.
