Excerpt
Excerpt: A Message from the Center Director 2 2002 Annual Report Roy D. Bridges Jr. This year Kennedy Space Center (KSC) marked 40 years of pioneering the future. The 1960s were an exciting time at KSC as the New World set out to explore even newer worlds from our launch pads. All eyes focused on Florida as America took its first steps in the race for space. Heroes were made and everyone knew them by name. They represented everything good about our country, but especially its spirit of exploration and opening new frontiers of human experience. During the tireless space race to see which country would first launch a satellite, orbit the Earth, and ultimately land on the moon, no one thought that we would one day work in partnership with our former principal adversary. We held our breath and prayed for the survival of those first explorers. Today we cherish those who made the ultimate sacrifice for future generations as courageous heroes. The spirit and dreams of discovery born during those early days of the 1960s still live on at KSC as we continue to inspire the next generation of explorers -- as only NASA can. This year we commemorated the 112th Space Shuttle launch and 33rd Expendable Launch Vehicle (ELV) launch since KSC became the manager of the ELV program in October 1998. All but one of this year?s Shuttle missions focused on the daunting task of building the most complex laboratory ever built, the International Space Station (ISS). More than 390,000 pounds of ISS components are in orbit today and another 110,000 pounds will be processed during the coming year to achieve ?U.S. Core Complete.? KSC played a crucial role in making sure everything worked when it got to orbit, always remembering the seriousness of our responsibilities...
