CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. -- Freedom Star, one of NASA's solid rocket booster retrieval ships, is docked at Port Canaveral, Florida. The left spent booster from space shuttle Discovery's final launch is being positioned along side the vessel before continuing on to Hangar AF at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.      The shuttle’s two solid rocket booster casings and associated flight hardware are recovered in the Atlantic Ocean after every launch by Liberty Star and Freedom Star. The boosters impact the Atlantic about seven minutes after liftoff and the retrieval ships are stationed about 10 miles from the impact area at the time of splashdown. After the spent segments are processed, they will be transported to Utah, where they will be refurbished and stored, if needed. Photo credit: NASA/Ben Smegelsky KSC-2011-1850

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
