Kennedy Space Center United States of America
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Kennedy Space Center

East of Orlando and a little south of Titusville, the Kennedy Space Center occupies a peninsula on the Atlantic coast. Go through the Spacesport USA Visitors Information Center, the place that gives out a lot of information on services. You will be able to watch IMAX film projections on big screens and try simulations of skyrocket launching. A realistic launch experience is guaranteed! From there, follow one of the bus tours, through the Space base. Look at the vessels that travelled through Space, and especially, the legendary engines that went to the Moon.

To return to earth, the space shuttle carries out a controlled landing not unlike that of an aeroplane, assisted by a parachute system.
