 ← ↑ These pictures show the main entrance to the Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral, Florida.  The rockets shown are actual rockets and engines that were used by NASA in the exploration of space.

 ← These pictures were taken from across the Banana River.  They are pictures of the launching platforms.

 ←  This is the

platform that moves

the Space Shuttle out

 This is the transport bus that was used to take the Apollo Astronaut Crew out to the rocket.

The pictures below are of the various modules that are part of the International Space Station.  While they are not the actual modules, they are the modules that the astronauts used during their many hours of training in learning how to attach them to the space station; how each module works; and the purpose of the module.

← ↑  These pictures are of a sealed room where technicians are working on a module to send up to the space station.  The first picture is the outside of this building.
