Scientific and Technical Information Program.;]. Shuttle Landing Facility (SLF) Orbiter landings at the Kennedy Space Center are made on one of the largest runways in the world.

The runway is located km (2 miles) northwest of the Vehicle Assembly Building and is 4, meters (15,ft) long and meters (ft) wide - about as wide as the length of a football field. It has meters (ft) of paved overruns at each end and the.

Discovery touched down at Kennedy’s Shuttle Landing Facility at a.m. EST to complete the day, million-mile STS mission to the International Space Station. The shuttle and its crew of six astronauts delivered the last pressurized module to the.

The orbiter touches down like an airplane, on runways at either Kennedy Space Center or the Dryden Flight Research Facility in Edwards, Calif. At KSC, the orbiter lands on a 15,foot (kilometer) runway. Located northwest of the Vehicle Assembly Building, the Shuttle Landing Facility has a northwest-southeast alignment.

NASA CENTERS AND RESPONSIBILITIES The space transportation system operates under the direction of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

NASA's John F. Kennedy Space Florida is responsible for all launch, landing and turnaround operations for STS missions requiring equatorial orbits. The Lyndon B.

Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, is responsible. Kennedy Space Center's responsibility also extends to the facilities and ground operations at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California and designated contingency landing sites.

Furthermore, Kennedy is NASA's prime center for payload testing and checkout and provides oversight of space agency missions launched on expend able rockets from Cape. Race to the Moon Apollo Moon Landing Shuttle: A Ship Like No Other NASA's Space Shuttle Program NASA Now + Next Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex is operated for NASA by Delaware North and is entirely visitor-funded.

Hours Open: 10 AM - 4 PM. On this day inNASA’s space shuttle program completes its final, and th, mission, when the shuttle Atlantis lands at Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Dream Chaser will fly back to Earth and land on the runway at Kennedy’s Launch and Landing Facility, formerly the Shuttle Landing Facility.

Shooting Star will have a different fate. It will carry unwanted cargo from the space station, disposing of it while burning up. Physical Assets. KSC offers a variety of facilities that are uniquely suited to support launch and aerospace activities, including a 15,foot runway, the space industry’s largest vehicle integration facility, payload processing facilities, launch control centers and vertical launch pads.

Until the Shuttle Atlantis' final landing on JKennedy Space Center (KSC) served as NASA's main spaceport, which is a launch and landing facility for rockets and spacecraft that are attempting to enter orbit.

Many of the facilities at KSC were created to assist the Shuttle Program. The European Space Agency’s (ESA) Solar Orbiter spacecraft arrived at the Launch and Landing Facility, formerly known as the Shuttle Landing Facility, at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida aboard an Antonov cargo plane from Munich, Germany, on Nov.
