Today, KSC is home to major NASA operations, astronaut training programs, and runs regular rocket launches as part of the Launch Services Program, responsible for launching satellites and robotic missions on journeys to learn more about our home planet and unlock the secrets of the universe. Many of your favourite interstellar movies were filmed here too, including Contact, Apollo 13, Armageddon and Tomorrowland. So, you've seen it on screen - now it's time to experience it for yourself! Explore historic launch sites and working spaceflight facilities, marvel at the actual Atlantis Shuttle and a Saturn V rocket, enjoy interactive exhibits at the many museums around the center, and - of course - shop till you drop in the biggest NASA store int he world!
