... out onto the pad and touch the rocket.
Next we drive out to the launch pad where the Apollo I fire took the lives of astronauts Grissom, Chaffee & White. NASA eventually made over 1300 design changes following the tragedy.

We made the hour drive from Orlando to Cape Canaveral and pretty much made it there just as it opened. I was used to the heaving Disney crowds the last few days so I was pleasantly surprised to be in a not ...
