Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex offers free admission to veterans, active military personnel

In honor of Veterans Day, Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex will offer free admission to veterans and active military personnel on Friday, November 10 through Sunday, November 12, 2006. Coinciding with Veterans Day is the 40th Anniversary of Gemini XII and, in celebration, Astronauts Jim Lovell and Buzz Aldrin will give a special Veterans Day public presentation Saturday, November 11 at 4:15 p.m. at the Visitor Complex. Commander Jim Lovell and Pilot Buzz Aldrin launched from Kennedy Space Center on November 11, 1966 aboard the final Gemini mission, paving the way for the Apollo flights that would later take Lovell, Aldrin and 22 of their fellow astronauts to the Moon.

Guests will have full access to Visitor Complex shows and exhibits, take a behind-the-scenes tour of Kennedy Space Center, see Space Shuttle launch pads, walk beneath a Saturn V rocket at the
Apollo/Saturn V Center, view the IMAX® films Magnificent Desolation: Walking on the Moon 3D and Space Station 3D, and tour the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame.
