Historic launch pad 39A...

that will be used by Endeavour this coming Friday was previously used to launch Apollo 11, the mission where man first landed on the Moon (click to enlarge).  Read more here.

This Thursday I will take a tour of Kennedy Space Center and will get as close as 1.2 miles from the pad, where the two roads diverge at the bottom center of the aerial image.  It will be awesome to see Endeavour sitting on the historic pad, ready for its final blastoff the following day.
