Like many kids growing up in the 1960’s, I was obsessed with America’s space program. I would watch launches and ultimately the moon landing on television, build and fly model rockets and dream about what it would be like to be out in space. Earlier this year, I had the opportunity to go behind the scenes at the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Florida and actually see what it takes to make it all happen. I was given access to everything, from the launch pad and tower to the Orbiter Processing Facility, the solid rocket boosters, sections of the space station, and more.
