    Love the pix. Really Do.

    I went to KSC as a young kid but knew nutin.

    Now...I would happy lick the paint off a Saturn V.

    KSC is one of the only places with a real Saturn V, LM and CSM...the lunar rover is a test example as all the real ones are far away...

    I would go Florida again just to see this.
