Cape Canaveral from Cocoa Beach

It is about a year ago that we were at Cape Canaveral – I posted quite a bit from there at the time. This is a view of some of the larger launch structures from Cocoa Beach

An interior view of the VAB at Cape Canaveral, made up from five photographs. It is a hard space in which to gauge the scale, but if you look at the handrails for each vertical bay you begin to get an idea.

Quite a thrilling space.

The VAB at Cape Canaveral is large. The side bays seen above in stereo have platforms to fit the lower stages of the Saturn Five rocket. We are still in the lower part of the building. From the outside (below) you cannot calibrate the scale, and it is hard to do so inside despite markers such as stairs and railings.
