About

Located in northern Brevard County on Merritt Island, the John F. Kennedy Space Center (KSC) is a must-see destination for visitors and Florida residents alike. Used for every human shuttle launch into space since 1968, the Space Center has a unique and gripping history. Though NASA no longer launches shuttles with humans aboard, private launches still occur including rockets with supplies bound for the International Space Station.
