Launching into the next era of space exploration, the Kennedy Space Center Bus Tour has been updated to take you behind NASA’s gates like never before. Follow space guide Emily Calandrelli as she visits some of the most mission-critical areas of Kennedy Space Center. As you see larger-than-life facilities from your bus, Emily takes you closer to exclusive areas like launch complex 39B and the Vehicle Assembly Building. While touring this multi-user spaceport, hear from local space experts in their fields and learn how NASA has joined commercial partners to prepare for the future of space exploration. Be sure to include the all-new Kennedy Space Center Bus Tour to your day!
