• Updates on NASA’s newest endeavor looking back at Earth, the Earth System Observatory, designed to provide one-of-a-kind views of our home planet as only NASA can provide.

Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex is where rockets launch and inspiration begins at Florida's gateway to space. Located one small step from Orlando, arrive early for a full-day experience at the greatest space adventure on Earth. Built in 1967 as a means for NASA Astronauts’ and employees’ families to view space center operations, today the Visitor Complex is one of Central Florida’s popular destinations. Our ongoing space journey can be defined by significant eras. That’s why we’ve organized Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex into Mission Zones — grouped attractions and experiences reflecting specific periods of time and achievements. Your journey awaits!
