At Kennedy Space Center, we're focused on flying the remaining space shuttle missions safely and completing the International Space Station. From this same location that launched humans to the moon forty years ago, we're preparing for our new missions back to the moon as part of NASA's Constellation Program. Once again we'll be leaving low Earth orbit as NASA returns to the moon and we go beyond.
Kennedy is also home to NASA's Launch Services Program. This program is responsible for launching satellites and robotic missions on journeys to learn more about our home planet and to unlock the secrets of the universe.
America's space program challenges and motivates us. It's our destiny to explore, to learn and reach beyond our known world. The space program expands our horizons. It makes life better for everyone on Earth, and it prepares us to cope with the unknowns that the future may hold.
