Visiting the Launch Control Center (post 33)

The NASA press bus then takes us from the VAB to the nearby Launch Control Center (LCC) where we go to the top and have a spectacular view of Launch Complex 39A. The Saturn V is still encased in the gray Mobile Service Structure (MSS) gantry, which is scheduled to be rolled back later this afternoon. The crushed-rock roadway leading from the VAB to the pad is clearly visible, as is the large white round tank used to store liquid hydrogen. We go inside the LCC where there are 3 firing rooms which process the Saturn V rockets. Firing Room 1 preparing Apollo 11 is off- limits, but we are escorted to the floor of the other two.
