Description


Original light fixture from the the Fixed Service Structure (FSS) of Kennedy Space Center's famous Launch Pad 39A, measuring approximately 14 x 19 x 9, which stood at the pad from the 1970s as the Space Shuttle program was getting under way through 2016 when it was taken down. The structure supporting the light fixture was built of a special blast-protective steel in case of a launch explosion or pad fire. In very good, well-worn condition. The 347-foot high Fixed Service Structure (FSS) of Launch Complex 39A was the closest structure to the Shuttle itself and home to the Orbiter Access Swing Arm for crew entrance and exit, which was attached to the famous 'white room.' Pad A of Launch Complex 39 was the site of 92 launches from 1967 through 2011, including eighty Shuttle launches and all but one of the manned Apollo flights. From the collection of aerospace memorabilia specialist Ken Havekotte.
