    Media representatives are on hand at the Shuttle Landing Facility at NASAâs Kennedy Space Center in Florida for the arrival of the Shuttle Carrier Aircraft. The aircraft, known as an SCA, arrived at p.m. EDT to prepare for shuttle Discoveryâs ferry flight to the Washington Dulles International Airport in Sterling, Va., on April   But the faces at what became Kennedy Space Center stayed mostly the same during the ’60s and ’70s, when the race to the moon got caught up with the Cold War. By the ’80s, though, NASA got.

Texture Modification of the Shuttle Landing Facility Runway at the NASA Kennedy Space Center Robert H. Daugherty and Thomas J. Yager NASA Langley Research Center SUMMARY This paper describes the test procedures and the selection criteria used in selecting the best runway surface texture modification at the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) Shuttle Landing.

teria used in selecting an effective runway-surface-texture modification at the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) Shuttle Landing Facility (SLF) to reduce Orbiter tire wear. The new runway surface may ultimately result in an increase of allowable crosswinds for launch and land-ing operations.

The modification allows launch and land.

The Shuttle Landing Facility (SLF) (IATA: QQS, ICAO: KTTS, FAA LID: TTS) is an airport located on Merritt Island in Brevard County, Florida, United is a part of the John F.

Kennedy Space Center (KSC), and was used by NASA's Space Shuttle for landing until the program's end in It was also used for takeoffs and landings for NASA training jets such as the Shuttle Location: Merritt Island, Florida. Shuttle Landing Facility (SLF) Orbiter landings at the Kennedy Space Center are made on one of the largest runways in the world.

The runway is located km (2 miles) northwest of the Vehicle Assembly Building and is 4, meters (15,ft) long and meters (ft) wide - about as wide as the length of a football field. It has meters (ft) of paved overruns at each end. Space shuttle Atlantis rollover to Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in Space shuttle Atlantis on Launch Pad 39A for STS, the final flight of.

The preferred finish line is the shuttle's home base at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida -- a 15,foot-long runway that is about as wide as the length of a football field. "The 'go' for deorbit burn is usually done about the time we're in our last briefing," said Richard Merritt, a landing support manager with United Space Alliance.

— The famous seaside space shuttle runway here at NASA's Kennedy Space Center may have a second life soon as a launch and landing spot for a whole new type of space mission: tourist flights.

Kennedy Space Center continues to serve as NASA's lead center for several programs and offices while transforming into a joint commercial and government launch complex. "This is an exciting time as we continue to prepare the center for future space exploration programs," said Kennedy Center Director Bob Cabana.

According to History of the Shuttle Landing Facility at Kennedy Space Center. JSC wanted the water moat (located around the runway) since it would serve as a visual aid to identify the runway. It is also required by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a retention pond for storm water runoff from the concrete runway, and provides a barrier against the animals for the.

Yesterday, one of our spaceport partners, the U.S. Air Force, successfully landed their XB Orbital Test Vehicle at the Space Florida-operated Shuttle Landing Facility here at Kennedy Space Center.

I am proud to congratulate the Air Force on their program accomplishment and welcome them as a member of the KSC multiuser spaceport family.

This land would eventually become the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) we know today. The first request was for a square-mile area immediately north and west of existing Cape Canaveral launch pads.– Almost five years after NASA's last space shuttle landed in Florida, an orbiter returned to the runway at the Kennedy Space Center.
