President Dwight D. Eisenhower founded the NASA space center in 1958 and the NASA launch center in 1962.  Later the name was changed to honor President Kennedy who set the path for Americans to be the first on the moon. Every manned mission has departed from this space center.  This space station had the launching of the Hubble Space Telescope, the Mars Rover project, and the first spacecraft to visit Pluto. The John F. Kennedy Space Center in Florida is the primary functioning NASA base of operations, where rockets are launched and monitored post-launch. The Kennedy Space Center is the only working space shuttle site in the United States.
