Kennedy Space Center – Early Space Exploration


Rating: * * * 1/2
Type: Space program museum
Time: Continuous viewing
Kelly says: An eye-popping encounter with history

A portion of the original control room from the Mission Control building used during the Mercury and early Gemini missions has been transported here from its original home on Cape Canaveral. I found this small room, which looks a bit like a set from a low-budget 1950s television series, absolutely entrancing. It bears mute testimony to the speed at which our technology is exploding. The view you get is the same President Kennedy once enjoyed when he came to the Cape to witness a launch.

 

 

Otherwise, this is a once-over-lightly history of the early space program. Sometimes, the Beatles seem to get equal billing with the Mercury astronauts, but if you take the time to read the signage, you’ll learn quite a bit. And the few artifacts on display, actual Mercury and Gemini capsules prominent among them, are fascinating.
