Launch Complex 39 (LC-39) at John F. Kennedy Space Center was constructed specifically for the Saturn V rockets, which powered Lunar missions of Project Apollo. The complex was originally conceived as at least a three-pad complex in the early 1960s, but only two pads, Launch Pad 39A and Launch Pad 39B, were constructed. This combined with Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB), the crawlerway, and Launch Pad 39A and Launch Pad 39B. In this photograph, Launch Pad 39A is in the foreground, with the crawlerway, which connects it to the VAB, in the distance. This is the original Apollo-era configuration.
