One of the aft skirts that will become part of the Exploration Mission 1 stack was moved to the Booster Fabrication Facility at Kennedy. Another vital element for the EM-1 mission, the processing bay of the Vehicle Assembly Building where the massive booster and spacecraft will be stacked, also continues to take shape.

A baker’s dozen of zinnia flowers that were grown on the International Space Station were unpacked and recently dissected inside the Veggie flight laboratory in the Space Station Processing Facility at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. An additional dozen zinnias were given to the six crew members on the space station as souvenirs. Read more: http://go.nasa.gov/2aaB8zq

KSC accomplishments last week, see the installation of Platform G inside the Vehicle Assembly Building where it will be used for the Space Launch System rocket and Orion spacecraft processing. Also, the SAGE III instrument is working through processing before it is launched later this year to the International Space Station. It will be connected to the orbiting laboratory to collect data about Earth's atmosphere.

NASA's Journey to Mars will require groundbreaking technologies and solutions to many complex problems. For a pair of NASA scientists at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, an idea to help make that trip possible began with simply "wanting to understand why."

A heavy-lift crane lowers the second half of the D-level work platforms, D north, for NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS) rocket, into position Sept. 9 for installation in High Bay 3 in the Vehicle Assembly Building at the agency’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The platform will be installed on the north side of the high bay. The D platforms are the seventh of 10 levels of work platforms that will surround and provide access to the SLS rocket and Orion spacecraft for Exploration Mission 1. The Ground Systems Development and Operations Program is overseeing upgrades and modifications to VAB High Bay 3, including installation of the new work platforms, to prepare for NASA’s #journeytoMars.

Also on your intakes have climate control intakes on your jets and on regular Motors that self-adjust with fans in some cases ionic with fans with heat that's as far as I know from the dreams I'm doing my best 2 to help

A new shipment of cargo for the International Space Station took flight aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket July 18 and the rocket’s spent first stage flew back to a successful landing. Meanwhile, the company’s Dragon spacecraft continued on its path, carrying almost 5,000 pounds, including the Biomolecule Sequencer and Phase-Change Heat Exchanger science payloads and the International Docking Adapter.

Tremendously interesting. What I find most meaningful other than the essential results of scientific testing is the fact that the ISS will help our planet have another level of diplomatic relations that deals with cognitive compassion that completely different than international negotiations where some issues end up more complicated and threatening in dangers to the peoples in the area that has the greatest concerns. I realize it sounds as though I am speaking of two worlds but not at all from those scientists who see the different perspective of space cooperation and with me, I have always followed NASA and KENNEDY more so just for true sentimental reasons of the fact that John F. Kennedy perhaps was the United States first president who took the results of NASA extremely serious and that is my reason for going along with all perspectives but focusing on America and where we began with Kennedy operations.

Story
Tagline
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.
