Initial report by +SpaceX regarding the issues causing the loss of the CRS-7 mission. We are looking forward to seeing the return of #Falcon9   launches from Cape Canaveral later this year.
 
Summary of preliminary findings regarding CRS-7 mission, further investigation may reveal more over time → http://www.spacex.com/news/2015/07/20/crs-7-investigation-update
On June 28, 2015, following a nominal liftoff, Falcon 9 experienced an overpressure event in the upper stage liquid oxygen tank approximately 139 seconds into flight, resulting in loss of mission. This summary represents an initial assessment, but further investigation may reveal more over time.

Twenty years ago today, July 4, 1995, STS-71 Atlantis undocked from MIR following the historic first of a shuttle docking with the MIR Space Station. Pilot Charlie Precourt felt the mission was one of his most memorable of his career. #july4th   #independenceday   #MIR   #NASA

This is a dam good place to visit when you do the Florida / Orlando run. Great attractions and actually not that expensive to go. Tickets for 2 adults were £76. This did not include a Bus Tour which is extra but they are only $25. Its not a park as all the others, its a visitors center but its a really interesting and great day out. The Atlantis project is new and its amazing to get up and close to an Actual Space Shuttle. Id recommend booking a Bus Tour in advance if you want to go to the launch site or another tour. The basic Bus trip takes you to the Saturn 5 Rocket center and is included with the ticket price and is good, but extra tours are worth it, just book in advance as they fill up fast.

The Atlantis exhibit is top notch, as is the Saturn V & Moon Lander exhibit. Space Shuttle launch ride was awesome. The Rocket Garden was amazing. Wish we could have seen it at night. The early space exploration exhibit was great as well. IMAX movies were well done. The Mars Rover and Great Balls of Fire exhibit definitely needs an update. Just felt too plain and tad out dated. The local Cape Canaveral history/animals/fauna just seemed out of place. Did the Escape Tour which honestly was a bit of a let down. Felt like we were just far away or distance from really seeing things. Guide was way too long winded. Had a lot of information which is great, but really needs to cull it and sharpen it to not lose his audience which happened all the time. Also felt the stops were either rushed or didn't have the oomph impact they were intended to. There was no time after all that to also see the Astronaut meeting or go to the Astronaut Hall of Fame. Plan for 2 days if you want to see all that, or have kids. Food at the Moon Cafe is decent though up-charged what you would expect at visitor center/theme park.

Visited the Kennedy Space Center on April 28, 2015 with my immediate family and 2 1/2 year old daughter. We had an absolute blast. I never thought I'd enjoy it nearly as much as I did, and my daughter was mesmerized the entire time. KSC is well worth the ticket price as we were there from 10 in the morning until almost 5 that evening. So much to look at and easily accommodated our stroller throughout the entire visit. Can't wait until next year to come back and visit!

Love NASAs Kennedy Space Center! Great destination for tourists and those who love space, rockets, and learning about how we get to space! The space shuttle simulator is pretty cool too. I also enjoy the bus tours. Great place.

Awesome. Great exhibits and good value. Nice mix of education and fun. Make sure to see the Saturn V rocket, the size of it's amazing to see close up. IMAX movies were well done too, especially the Hubble movie. Biggest negative were the excessive number of tolls between Orlando and the Space Coast. Make sure to add 20 minutes to your planned travel time with toll booths seemingly every 5 miles.

We went to KSC one afternoon, then bought an annual pass so we could return the next day. We plan on visiting again, perhaps this winter. We were thoroughly blown away by KSC experience. This attraction is magnificent.

The food was absolutely terrible. We ate at the Moon Rock café and it was just disgusting. For $50 for a family of four, I expected something remotely edible. Not only that, the lady at the ticket counter claimed that the promotional codes had nothing to do with KSC and their web site. Which is totally false. BTW, the place to put the promotional code is under "menu" if accessing with a mobile device. For the price ($50 for basic or $75 if you wanted to see the "classic" launch pads), I was disappointed.
