The Kennedy Space Center in Florida containing Launch Complex 39 is the largest and most famous Space Center in the Western World. It is located within a Nature Reserve at Cape Canaveral and provides more facilities than just a launch platform. A new era of space transportation arose with the use of Space Shuttle technology which allowed a variety of payloads to be economically carried into orbit. The U.S. National Aeronautical and Space Agency (NASA ) operates Launch Complex 39 at the northern end of Cape Canaveral within the grounds of the John F. Kennedy Space Center (KSC). It has two identical Launch Pads, LC-39A and LC-39B. Nearly all of NASA's manned Space Flight Missions were launched from here using Saturn rockets. After the Apollo program was concluded the facilities were converted in order to support the Space Shuttle program between 1981 and 2011. On both reinforced concrete launch pads stand the 81 meter high steel supply towers with all necessary cables, cranes, stairs, elevators and a horizontal swivel arm - the Rotating Service Structure (RSS). As soon as the Mobile Launch Platform (MLP) supporting the external tank, two boosters and the Orbiter mounted in its launch position is resting on the pillars of the launch pad, the RSS is rotated towards the Shuttle. It served to protect the Shuttle from the weather, to supply power, loading of the transport hold and final refueling. The Orbiter access hatch was accessed at a height of 45 meters above the launch pad from the RSS via a pivoting access arm. The Mobile Launch Platform holding with the Space Shuttle was moved from the assembly building to the launch site using a tracked transporter unit. The tracked transporter unit was propelled by two powerful 2,750 hp (2023 kW) diesel engines and reached an average speed of 1.6 km/h. Now the Space Shuttle Program has come to an end, these facilities are currently being rebuilt in order to launch future rockets.
