For the first time in more than 30 years, NASA is allowing Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex guests inside the Launch Control Center — where engineers supervised all of the 152 launches for the space shuttle and Apollo programs. The “Up-Close: Launch Control Center Tour,” the second in Kennedy Space Center’s special 50th anniversary series of rare-access tours, takes visitors inside Firing Room 4 led by a trained space expert. The tour will be offered through the end of the year.

Details: 877-313-2610 or www.KennedySpaceCenter.com.
