Another batch from our visit to Florida and the Kennedy Space Center.

V1 is mission control (the low long building) which has to be sited 5 miles away from the launch pad in case of fuel explosion,
V2 is the Vehicle Assembly Building where work is going on at present on the Space Launch System, an advanced heavy lift launch vehicle system to facilitate the transportation of crew and cargo to the International Space Station. The flag is the size of an American football pitch and each star is 6ft across.
V3 is the crawler designed to transport the shuttle to the launch pad
V4 is the tower support that sits on the base
V5 is the crawler track which they are at present upgrading to facilitate the heavier weighted rockets
V6 is the launch pad

I think this facility is a complete waste of money Carole.
Don't they know that there are aliens about who abduct you into space for free ?
I have been abducted only once however.
They got sick of my story telling and threw me back to earth !!
Good set.
