- Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center (Texas) - John F. Kennedy Space Center (Florida)
Lyndon Johnson. Capt. Warner Athey
It's called Kennedy Space Center
Part of the decision to build Mission Control in Houston was practical, the other political. Then Vice President Lyndon Johnson, who was a Texas native and former Senator of t…hat state. Johnson knew that the new NASA programs would mean millions for his state and constituents.\n \n \nThe practical reason is differences in assignment for each center - Kennedy Space Center Launch Control directs the mission clock and everything associated with the mission up until the point of spacecraft launch (end of countdown). When the clock moves into a positive count, Mission Control at JSC Houston takes over the mission, and thus assumes responsibility for the duration of the mission. If it's a Shuttle, once it lands, responsibility shifts back to KSC.\n \n \nIt's important to understand that Mission Control is the directing center for Manned Flight training (Astronauts) and control of manned missions. The launch of the spacecraft, which is handled at Cape Canaveral Air Station or Kennedy Space Center, depending on the spacecraft being launched and the vehicle involved, and which side of the center the launch takes place at.\n \n \nIn other words, Houston is responsible for Manned Flight operations while manned craft are in orbit (Shuttle, ISS, etc.). Kennedy Space Center is responsible for getting the craft ready for launch and the launch itself, as well as the recovery after mission termination.\n \n \nLocation is also a factor - Florida typically has more inclement weather problems than Houston does (hurricanes don't usually threaten Houston), and though KSC is built to ride out a hurricane, the last thing you want is to have your key control center go down in the middle of a Manned Flight mission. Granted, in the early days of the program where space shots weren't that often it wasn't as much of a concern. But NASA always knew we'd have a long-term manned presence in space, and that started with Skylab in the 70's. As long as there are humans in space, there needs to be constant monitoring for safety and information. With the ISS permanently manned, Mission Control has taken on an even greater focus.

There are several Eye Centers located in Florida. Bonita Springs and Fort Myers each have an Eye Care Center. Calling one of those to find one that is local to your location i…s the best way to find one convenient to you.
The Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, is only one of many NASA Centers of Excellence, though its fame as the primary site for Manned Flight Mission Control Operations an…d Astronaut training has kept it at the front of the public eye. JSC's location was no accidental choice; it was strictly political, though NASA did get a good deal out of it. However, the bottom line is that then-Texas Senator (later Vice President) Lyndon B. Johnson was influential in assuring passage of the National Aeronautics and Space Act, which established NASA in 1958. Later, as Vice President to JFK, he used his influence to have NASA's Mission Control and Astronaut Corps training center established in Texas. JSC was renamed in his honor in '73 after he passed away that year.
There are four Storage Centers located in the state of Texas. Two are located in Round Rock in Texas and there are two located in San Antonio in Texas.
NASA's headquarters are in Washington, D.C. They have several otherfacilities, in different parts of the United States.
There is no Gulf possible between the regions as you state them -Mexico is to the west of Florida and therefor there can not be aGulf WEST of Florida AND north and southern Me…xico. Your question makes no sense and thus can not be answered.
