The water-surrounded expanse of KSC is obvious in this aerial photo. At the center front is the Shuttle Landing Facility's (SLF) parking facility with its mate/demate device on the left corner. Beyond it runs Kennedy Parkway North, a route that passes the Vehicle Assembly Building seen in the upper right corner. At right is the tow-way, connecting the Orbiter Processing Facility with the SLF. Between it and the SLF parking area is the remote launch vehicle hangar, still under construction. On the horizon, looking east, is seen the Atlantic Ocean.
