A New Generation...A Multi-User Spaceport
The most recognized function of KSC is the transportation of people and payloads to orbit and beyond. Having the facilities and infrastructure to support transportation of people and cargo out of Earth's atmosphere and into outer space is what qualifies space as a fifth mode of transportation.
KSC's vertical launch capability includes Launch Pads 39A, 39B, and Launch Complex 41, as well as the Crawlerway. The center also has the capability of supporting horizontal launch and landing operations utilizing the Shuttle Landing Facility and associated support infrastructure. All launch operations at KSC and CCAFS are currently supported by the U.S. Air Force-operated Eastern Range, which includes the mechanism and launch infrastructure that supports space transportation at KSC.
