Explore NASA's Kennedy Space Center with Google Street View

Google Partnered with NASA to create the largest special collection of Street View imagery to date, totaling 6,000 panoramic views.

Google launched a new special photo collection of the NASA Kennedy Space Center. Just type in Kennedy Space Center in Google Maps and you can explore the legendary Kennedy Space center from home.

This location is Google's largest special collection of Street View imagery to date, totaling 6,000 panoramic views of the facilities, and expanding our mission to document the world's most amazing places.

Among the images you can now explore online with the click of your mouse are the space shuttle launch pad, Vehicle Assembly Building and Launch Firing Room #4.

You can look down from the top of the enormous launch pad, peer up at the towering ceiling of the Vehicle Assembly Building (taller than the Statue of Liberty) and get up close to one of the space shuttle's main engines, which is powerful enough to generate 400,000 lbs of thrust. From these vantage points, anyone can live out his or her childhood dream of becoming an astronaut.

See a video of the highlights below that Google just published.
