Kennedy Space Center

Kennedy Space CenterSo it has been awhile since I visited the Kennedy Space Center. In fact I was trying to figure it out last week and I came to the conclusion that it had been almost five or six years. So with the great rates on line I decided to go. I mean it’s really inexpensive and last I remember it was really great. Plus I have been hearing a lot of good feedback about all the updates to the Space Center I was kind of excited.

Now the last time I visited I got to be honest with you, I really enjoyed all the exhibits and the rockets they showcased but it seemed like there was a thick layer of dust over everything I found. But this time it was totally different. I don’t know if they hired new staff or if they stepped up there game, but the place was full of new stuff and everything seemed brand new!

From the massive rocket shuttles to recent pieces of debris from the unfortunate Challenger incident, this place has everything. One of the things that interested me most was the full exhibit on the new James Webb Space Telescope, something planned to be launched in 2018. The exhibits here are just limitless; I mean there is interesting fact after interesting fact.

The truth is I could sit here for days telling you about what I saw, there is just so much. If you plan on visiting Kennedy Space Center while in Orlando… which you should, look for a tour. I really wish someone was guiding me the entire time I was there, especially someone who could answer my questions.
