On our educational trip to the USA East Coast, we got an opportunity to explore the Kennedy Space Center and this blogpost briefly recounts our experience.

Kennedy Space Center with EdTerra

First, let’s look at what we discovered about the facility’s history. After NASA was established by President Dwight Eisenhower in 1958, the NASA Launch Operations Center was opened in East Florida. Later, this facility was renamed after John F Kennedy who played an instrumental role in spearheading the moon landing mission. The Kennedy Space Center, is one of the ten field centres administered by NASA. Interestingly, the KSC is the primary launch centre of human spaceflight. Spread over 567 sq km at Merritt Island in Florida, the Kennedy Space Center is home to about 700 buildings and facilities. 

We accessed the facility through a bus tour during which we saw the Launch Complex 39, the Vehicle Assembly Building, the Apollo V Center, and Space Shuttle Atlantis. We also went to the Rocket Garden where some of the most amazing exhibits were kept. That area is one of the most photographed locations inside the KSC Visitor Complex.

Our visit to the Kennedy Space Center was an enlightening one. It was inspiring to see how far humans have reached in the field of space exploration. We were awed to see how with limited resources but immense grit and determination, a lot can be achieved in less time. We realised that ‘failure is not an option in life’.

In conclusion, we would like to thank our teachers and our EdTerra Journey Mentor for making this trip so memorable and awe-inspiring.
