Space Shuttle Launchpad B
A launch across the Indian River Lagoon
Taken an instant after liftoff
From across the Indian River in Titusville
You might guess I like the fire tails reflected
in the water
Beyond the dock is the NASA Causeway to
the Kennedy Space Center
This is my favorite. I was standing on
the hood of my truck when I took it.
Launchpad B. At the left the water tower dumps a
million gallons of water on the launchpad base to
keep the steel from melting at liftoff.
The Vehicle Transporter: Used to move
the assembled Shuttle from the VAB to the
launchpads. You can walk faster than it travels.
At the bottom on the right and between the
tracks are people standing around.
Vehicle Assembly Building. Where the Space
Shuttle and it's boosters are assembled. Size?
On the left side of the insigna for the Bi-centennial
is a scaffold with two painters on it. For many
years it stood as the building with the largest volume
in the world.
