One of the stops on our VIP tour of the Kennedy Space Center facilities was the ISS Processing Facility.  This building where the components for the International Space Station are prepared for flight.

We also got a  photo opportunity with the Cape Canaveral lighthouse.  Mary and I love the charm of lighthouses, so that stop was really special.

The bus drove around the Delta rocket launch complex and we saw a Delta rocket on the launch pad being prepared for flight.

Our bus tour also included a stop at the Cape Canaveral Air Station Museum.  This site is flush with history from the very early days of space exploration.
