The Rocket Garden

Rocket Garden - Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, Florida

Photos by Ben Prepelka

     One of the first attractions visitor's see as they enter the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex is Space Suit (Extravehicular Mobility Unit) an array of historic rockets. Vintage Redstone, F-1 Saturn V Main Engine - Most powerful
liquid-use engine ever built Titan and Atlas rockets poke their noses high into the Florida sky, rockets that launched the first astronauts into space. New dramatic lighting shows off the rocket fuselages and a patriotic lighting scheme enhances the Rocket Garden.
      The complex also features two giant IMAX Theater screens. The five story picture is enlivened with a wall of sound. Truly, it's the next best thing to a live rocket launch. Visitors may also have lunch with an astronaut and tour the Space Center, seeing its launch and assembly structures.
