Some footage of the area that is just next door to one of the two IMAX Cinemas at Kennedy Space Center, Florida. The area is usually packed with people both directly before and after a film screening. One can see a small model of the Hubble Space Telescope and quite a number of sample images.
The Apollo / Saturn V Center is one of the stops during the Kennedy Space Center Bus Tour. After a short video presentation one enters a mockup of the Apollo Mission Control Room. It runs a simulation of what it was like during an actual launch. One is presented with a short video introduction before the simulation of the final minutes before launch takes place. In the final ten seconds once the rocket ignites the room literally begins to shake due to the audio level of the launch, adding greatly to the overall experience. It finally concludes with some words by Jim Lovell one of the crew of the Apollo VIII mission. Once the simulation has finished the doors on the opposite side from where you came open allowing you to enter the exhibition area and see items such as Alan Shepard’s corvette, various lunar modules and of course the apex of the display a Saturn V launch vehicle stretching almost the complete length of the building.
