Happy 50th birthday to the “gadgetiest” place of all, NASA’s Kennedy Space Center! This historic home to the creation and launch of many of the most important space missions wants you to help celebrate. KSC in conjunction with Google want to invite you on a virtual tour of the Space Center. There is plenty to see from a space shuttle up close to a launch pad to the visitor center, all from the convenience of your computer. It is the largest Google Street View project to date, with over 6,000 panoramic photographs to take you to the scene of some of the greatest sites in space history.
To get your free tour simply log on to Google Maps. Search for Kennedy Space Center. Zoom in on the area. Drag the orange pegman icon onto an area that becomes highlighted in blue. Then you cruise about to view the panoramic images. And keep an eye on the pegman as he turns into an astronaut.
So whether you have been and want to bring back memories or are seeing it for the first time, hop online and get a unique glimpse of the Kennedy Space Center.
