LC-39 Artist Concept - 1965

Apollo's lunar missions were not launched from Cape Kennedy. Launch Complex 39, where Saturn Vs were launched, was on Kennedy Space Center grounds. (Launch Complexes 34 and 37 were on the Air Force Eastern Test Range, on the Cape itself.) Of the three launch areas planned for Complex 39, Area C was not constructed; Areas (or Pads) A and B were built and used for all Saturn V launches.
