Crawler Transporter 2 was recently driven to Launch Pad 39B to test completed upgrades and modifications to ensure the vehicle will be ready to support NASA’s #JourneyToMars. The Ground Systems Development and Operations Program at Kennedy oversaw upgrades to the crawler in the Vehicle Assembly Building. The crawler will carry the mobile launcher with Orion atop the Space Launch System rocket to Pad 39B for Exploration Mission 1. Learn more about the Crawler and other activities going on at Kennedy in April's issue of Spaceport Magazine.

Our nation's gateway to exploring, discovering and understanding our universe.
Introduction
NASA’s John F. Kennedy Space Center has helped set the stage for America’s adventure in space for more than four decades. The spaceport has served as the departure gate for every American manned mission and hundreds of advanced scientific spacecraft. From the early days of Project Mercury to the space shuttle and International Space Station, from the Hubble Space Telescope to the Mars Exploration Rovers, the center enjoys a rich heritage in its vital role as NASA’s processing and launch center . As the nation embarks on a new chapter in space exploration, Kennedy will continue to make history.
