Honoring NASA's 60th Anniversary

Oct 01, 2018 Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex

Join Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex as we honor six decades of NASA's leadership in space sciences and discovery! In 1958, Present Dwight D. Eisenhower signed the legislation that launched the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the agency opened for business on October 1, 1958. Our mission at the visitor complex is to inspire minds through memorable space experiences. Here, you will learn about the past, present and future of NASA and America’s multi-user spaceport.

On October 1, 2018 in celebration of NASA’s 60th anniversary, the visitor complex will give away a commemorative 60th anniversary infographic and pin to each of our guests. These giveaways are available from Guest Services and the Information building while supplies last, so arrive early and spend a full day exploring all of our attractions and exhibits.

Also, be sure to take your photo with the NASA 60th sign located in front of Heroes & Legends and the Rocket Garden. Join the conversation online and show us your photos by using the hashtags #KennedySpaceCenter and #NASA60th.
