The name already tells you everything – the Space Coast was the place where the first Americans were sent into space to conquer the moon. The Kennedy Space Centre is a fabulous experience that will make you feel like one of the astronauts who got the chance to see earth from space. From here, American astronauts confronted and overcame the challenges of space flight, conquered the moon, and set out aboard scores of shuttle flights to launch – and repair – satellites and build the International Space Station.
Have you ever wondered what would happen if an asteroid or comet hit your home-town? What would your neighbourhood look like?

Even after visiting the Kennedy Space Centre, your journey through the world of aerospace is not yet finished. The Valiant Air Command and Vintage Warbird Museum is a great place to discover planes from the First World War and to admire what pilots flew in at the beginning of the air force.
