NASA’s Rocket Garden, Kennedy Space Center

I’ve been captivated by space travel from the moment I learned it existed. So visiting the Rocket Garden at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida for the first time made a huge impression on me.

The Kennedy Space Center Rocket Garden from outside the gates

What a view!

Left to right: Mercury Redstone, Mercury Atlas, Delta, Juno II, Atlas- Agena and Gemini-Titan, with Saturn 1B lying on its side behind

Mercury Redstone, like the one flown by Alan Shepard, the first American in space

Mercury Atlas, like the one that carried John Glenn into Earth orbit

Saturn 1B, like those used in the development of the Saturn V rockets, which would eventually carry astronauts to the Moon

Another view of the Saturn 1B
