America’s Spaceport is Ready | YouTube

NASA’s Kennedy Space Center is a multi-user spaceport capable of processing, launching and recovering a myriad of spacecraft and launch vehicles. Some of the iconic facilities at Kennedy have undergone extensive upgrades, including the Vehicle Assembly Building, Launch Complex 39 Pads A and B, the Neil Armstrong Operations and Checkout Facility, and Orbiter Processing Facility-3, now known as the Commercial Crew and Cargo Processing Facility, or C3PF. C3PF will be the manufacturing and processing facility for Boeing’s CST-100 spacecraft. The CST-100, short for Commercial Space Transportation-100, is being developed in partnership with NASA’s Commercial Crew Program to carry astronauts to and from the International Space Station.
