Doing homework for your visit to Kennedy Space Center is not absolutely necessary, but it helps if you have at least some background knowledge of the space program. A painless way to get that background is to head down to the video store and rent The Right Stuff and Apollo 13. Both films are a lot of fun to watch and offer great insight into the human as well as the technical dimensions of the space program. And search YouTube for the 1994 Discovery Channel special, The Space Shuttle.
For information about the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex itself, call (866) 737-5235 or log on at www.kennedyspacecenter.com. Another way to get an advance look at the Center is to call the above number or visit www.thespaceshop.com and order the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex tour book. It is $7.99, plus tax and takes about a week to arrive. It doesn't provide tour and film times but it will certainly whet your appetite and help you decide how to focus your time during your visit.
