l Kenedy Space Center 2010
Space Education Initiatives and the Iowa Space Grant Consortium are coordinating a behind the scenes tour of Kennedy Space Center June 10-12. The tour is specially designed for educators and in the past** we have gotten tours of the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB), one of the Orbiter Processing Facility (OPF), Launch Complex 39, Space Shuttle Main Engine (SSME) Processing Facility, and the Parachute Refurbishment Facility. We also visit the Welcome Center, Gift Shop, Saturn V Center and Educator Resource Center located at Kennedy. One of the extremely unique aspects of the trip is the participation of space historian Andrew Chaikin. His books include the best-selling chronicle of the Apollo moon missions, A Man on the Moon, the main basis for Tom Hanks’ Emmy-winning HBO miniseries, From the Earth to the Moon. Andrew will lead the Friday tour of the historical Cape Canaveral launch complexes where the American space program was born, as well as a Saturday tour of the astronaut Hall of Fame in Titusville.
