the Kennedy Space Center – part one

the Kennedy Space Center – part one

In this photo essay, we offer pictures taken at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.  This was the first port of call on our photographer’s week long cruise in November, 2013. (Autumn weather in Florida is much milder than in New York.)  I can remember (when a child) the summer of 1969, and the Apollo landing on the moon in July.

President Kennedy had a vision that America would get to the moon by the end of the 1960s.
