Launch Complex 39 Construction:  Launch Complex 39 LC-39 was originally designed and built to launch American astronauts toward the moon.  The complex stretches inland from the Atlantic Ocean across four miles of what, until 1963, was a land of intermittent marshes and sandy scrub growth.  In less than four years, starting with 1963 and ending with 1966, it was transformed into an operational spaceport embodying a mobile concept:  rockets and spacecraft are erected in one area and transported to a separate location for launch.  A total of 153 vehicles have been launched from LC-39.    Poster designed by Kennedy Space Center Graphics Department/Greg Lee. Credit: NASA KSC-2012-1860
