What building at Kennedy space center is one of the largest in thew world?
The Kennedy space center is a space center where they do space stuff and launch and land space shuttles and do a bunch of scientific stuff there and it's in Florida! The Ke…nnedy Space center is NASA's (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) space vehicle launch place and Launch Control Center. It is located on Merritt Island near Cape Canaveral in Florida.
The Kennedy Space Center was built in 1965. The Kennedy spacecenter is located in Merritt Island, Florida.
It was completed in 1965 and opened in 1968.
Assuming you mean "Who was the Kennedy Space Center named after?", the answer is President John F. Kennedy.
when did it open
The Kennedy Space Center complex encompasses approximately 219 square miles of area on the Florida Space Coast. That doesn't include the adjacent Cape Canaveral Air Force Stat…ion across the Merritt Island Causeway, which comprises about 1,325 acres.
According to Google Maps, 70.3 mi - about 1 hour 30 mins by car.
The Kennedy Space Center is important because it set the precedentfor space travel in the United States. It is the only operatingshuttle launch system, and it will continue to… make history
They are about 77 miles apart (approximately an hour and 35 minute drive).
Because it is a landmark in Cape Canaveral, FL.
The Vehicle Assembly Building at KSC holds the largest room at the Cape Canaveral complex (Cape Canaveral Air Station and Kennedy Space Center). Originally built to house th…e Apollo program's Saturn V rockets, it is the largest one-story building in the world. When the Saturn V rockets were taken out to the launch pads, they barely cleared the top of the doorway by inches. The building stands 525 feet high, and covers an area of 8 acres. It is absolutely mammoth in size - you cannot get an appreciation for how big it is unless you're standing next to it looking up. By comparison to the Saturn V, the Shuttles are small in comparison when taken to the pads on the crawler. An interesting fact is that the VAB is so big that it has its own "weather", with rain clouds forming at the top inside the building on humid days. On sunny days, rising heat from the building brings flocks of birds to the top to ride the wind currents generated by the heat coming off of it. When the American flag was painted on the side of the VAB in 1976 for the Bicentennial, it was the largest such flag in the world at the time. The stars on the flag measure 6', and the stripes are 9' wide. The VAB was built to withstand hurricane force winds and has weathered more than one hurricane in its history.
Though NASA retains ownership of Kennedy Space Center, the contract for base operations is currently retained by Lockheed Space Operations, in Titusville, Florida. The contrac…t was awarded in 1992 and scheduled to run until 2012, and is worth $1.9 Billion dollars over that period. Though LSO is the prime contractor, there are many other subcontractor personnel from other contractors that LSO subcontracts to for individual operations, such as launch preparation, payload preparation, vehicle transport, Astronaut support, etc. It has always been private contractors who are responsible for NASA Center operations; for example, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, NASA's Lead Center for mission direction of unmanned and robotic space probes, is managed and staffed by personnel from the California Institute of Technology (CalTech). Many people mistakenly believe that JPL is a part of CalTech, which of course it isn't.
Hahahaha I dont know? Why are you asking me Im just a computer. Go blog about it sonny boy.;)
look on mapquest.
