Some of the former Apollo program astronauts tour the new Apollo/Saturn V Center (ASVC) at KSC
prior to the gala grand opening ceremony for the facility that was held Jan. 8, 1997. The astronauts were invited to participate in the event,
which also featured NASA Administrator Dan Goldin and KSC Director Jay Honeycutt. Passing underneath the KSC Apollo/Saturn V inside
the building are (from left): Apollo 10 Lunar Module Pilot and Apollo 17 Commander Eugene A. Cernan; Apollo 9 Lunar Module Pilot
Russell L. Schweikart; Apollo 10 Command Module Pilot and Apollo 16 Commander John W. Young; Apollo 10 Commander Thomas P.
Stafford; and Apollo 11 Lunar Module Pilot Edwin E. "Buzz" Aldrin, Jr. The ASVC also features several other Apollo program spacecraft
components, multimedia presentations and a simulated Apollo/Saturn V liftoff. The facility will be a part of the KSC bus tour that embarks
from the KSC Visitor Center.
