Page one of four

A collection of photos from a return visit to tour the Launch Complex 39 Launch Control Center (LCC) at Kennedy Space Center. For a different perspective with lots of details, see the first visit on 16 June 2012. This visit includes two panoramas taken inside the LCC on pages 3 & 4.

While waiting for the LCC tour there was time to hear the talk by Brazilian astronaut Marcos Pontes seen here in a collage of images taken during his program. He is a very personable speaker who gave a great presentation on his flight to the International Space Station aboard a Russian Soyuz in 2006. He is expected to fly again to the ISS in a couple of years.
