The National Aeronautics and Space Administration NASA has released a video that will enchant space enthusiasts. The video, broadcast on NASA’s Kennedy Space Center YouTube channel, allows you to experience the Kennedy Space Center and 39B launch pad from an impressive perspective.
Experience the Kennedy Space Center in virtual reality
The launch pad, first used for the Apollo 10 mission in May 1969, also hosted the fourth crewed mission of the space program. The launch pad is also waiting to be used for NASA’s upcoming Artemis missions.
Kennedy Space Center, accompanied by NASA VR tour guide Joshua Santora, offers an exciting experience from start to finish. During the tour, we can also see the mobile launcher, launch pad and various features around it to be used to house and mount the Orion spacecraft, along with Artemis’s powerful Space Launch System (SLS). In addition, the VR tour allows us to get an idea of the dimensions of the structures and the size of the SLS rocket.
Don’t forget to drag your screen to various areas to fully explore the scenes while watching the VR tour, which allows you to see the inside of the “white room” where astronauts will board Orion shortly before launching on the launch pad, which has undergone extensive renovations since 2009.
