Kennedy Space Centre is one of the ten field centers of NASA. KSC spreads across an area of 219 square miles (567 square kilometers) on Merritt Island, northwest of Florida's Cape Canaveral. NASA has been serving as America's spaceport and is hosting all the manned spaceflight of the federal government's since the late 1960s. Kennedy Space Centre (KSC) was named after President John F. Kennedy, after he famously declared in the year 1961 that the United States will successfully send an astronaut on the moon, and bring him safely back to Earth before the decade ends.
After this bold commitment, the center ultimately succeeded in putting Neil Armstrong and his two Apollo 11 crewmates send to moon successfully and in returning the astronauts splashed down in the Pacific Ocean on July 24, 1969.
Approximately 700 facilities and buildings are grouped over across the center's 144,000 acres (580 km2). The complex of KSC also has a visitor complex for the public to provide a site view. As well as, the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex also provides tour facility to the visitors of the center and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station which displays a variety of exhibits, artifacts, display and attraction over the history and future of human and robotic spaceflight.
