Astronaut Scott Kelly and cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko will spend the next year living and working on the ISS. Kelly and his identical twin Mark Kelly will participate in studies of the effect of long-duration spaceflight on the human body. Watch the launch live on NASA TV -  http://1.usa.gov/1rU5HwX

Nitrogen is essential for all known forms of life. Our Curiosity Mars Rover has made the first detection of nitrogen on the surface of the Red Planet from release during heating of Martian sediments. The discovery adds to the evidence that ancient Mars was habitable for life. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1CM1OkM

MAVEN is a critical part of our exploration of Mars. It was a beautiful sight when the spacecraft launched in November 2013 from Cape Canaveral.
 
Our MAVEN spacecraft has observed two unexpected phenomena in the Martian atmosphere: an unexplained high-altitude dust cloud and aurora that reaches deep into the Martian atmosphere. Learn more: http://1.usa.gov/1FCyptL

Launch is targeted for 10:44 p.m. EDT with a 30 minute launch window. Learn more about the mission at http://www.nasa.gov/mms

What happened to the ocean that once existed on Mars? We need to know more about what happened to the water that once covered 20 percent of the planet?

Nothing better than watching a launch at a three mile distance from the launch pad. Here's what today's United Launch Alliance's Delta IV rocket looked like from at the NASA Causeway. #rocket   #DeltaIV

Gemini III astronauts Virgil "Gus" Grissom and John Young  are shown in their spacecraft "Molly Brown" during training. The first crew of two launched March 23, 1965 on a three-orbit flight. The Gemini program paved the way for the Apollo Space Program and included many firsts: longer duration flights; docking and undocking in space; and the first spacewalk by an American astronaut.

In the early days of rocket launches it wasn't uncommon for rockets to go off course or blow up. Space program worker Roy Tharpe remembers the time he was a bit too close to a launch. #rocket

Incredible place to visit! The facilities are great, but the real standout is the Atlantis facility. Truly world class, state of the art exhibits and you are so close to the orbiter. The Up Close Tour was a great way to get near a few amazing sites you'd never get to see otherwise! Also all the staff were great!

Amazing place to visit. Just about an hour away from Orlando and well worth the drive. The complex is massive and entry includes a bus tour of the launch pads and transport to the nearby Saturn V building. The Atlantis exhibition is incredible and it's fascinating to see all of the work and time that went into building something that massive and complicated. IMAX 3D movies are also included in the admission price and give you a good idea about what goes on up on the ISS. We easily spent a full day wandering round and I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Orlando or the surrounding area.

Great trip. A bit expensive but we'll worth it. The space shuttle exhibit was very well done.

My family loved visiting the space center last summer! I look forward to going back when the kids are a little older.

This complex was interesting - don't get me wrong. But most of this stuff, I'd already read about or saw when a NASA guy came to my high school 35 years ago! A tour, a pile of old technology, and two small I-Max shows was definitely not worth the $100 my wife and I paid to get in (and we're residents). I would not recommend this place to anyone. You can get a few much more interesting tours in Daytona Beach for under $20!

We went for the Space X Launch today (2/8/15) and the Launch was scrubbed at the last minute. I had not been to the KSC since the late 60s when I was a young child. and it was a trip down memory lane today with more to see, Space Shuttle etc. The Bus Tour, The Imax Movies, and other exhibits will be a never forgotten memory.This is a must trip for any and all families.

Absolutely incredible. Highly recommend the new Atlantis building, the AV presentation is the best I have ever seen, and the Shuttle has been left just how it landed, with the Plasma marks and everything, and the launch experience is a must do. Also, make sure you get the bus out to the Apollo building, and the hall of fame also has some good displays. If you are on the 'space coast' you must go.
