Julia Bergeron's recent tweet from Florida shows an electronics console that looks to be mid-20th century. Above it is written LC-19 but there are other LC signs as well, and this does not look like a setting where spacecraft are launched now.

Is this in some museum of Space history?

I suppose it could be in the Skycraft store in the replied tweet but it looks more like a museum or educational center to me.

  • $\begingroup$ @Conelisinspace I don't participate in any social media at all, at least not interactively. I just ran across a link to this tweet while doing research on Mr. Steven for this question. $\endgroup$ – uhoh Jul 14 '18 at 12:12

This is an exhibit in the Air Force Space and Missile Museum at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

This is a picture from the museum's website showing the same exhibit.

    $\begingroup$ Your links so often lead me to new places, thank you! What do these GPS-related emblems represent? Does one of them show "Marvin the Martian"? $\endgroup$ – uhoh Jul 14 '18 at 15:02

    $\begingroup$ It's a good museum mostly because of its awesome "rocket garden". It's hard to get to though, because it's behind the gates. I think the general public can pay to see it as part of a tour at the KSC visitor complex, but that info might be out of date. $\endgroup$ – Organic Marble Jul 14 '18 at 15:11

    $\begingroup$ I think this might be a virtual tour. It's not running on my laptop but that may be because of Flash issues. afspacemuseum.org/virtual So far I can't find a tour in google maps either. Wow, I'd really really love to see this! afspacemuseum.org/images/2018SpaceCollectibleShowPoster.jpg I wonder if they have the rocket-shaped coffee maker you commented on last year? (was that you, I can't remember) $\endgroup$ – uhoh Jul 14 '18 at 15:29

    $\begingroup$ The virtual tour doesn't work for me either - I don't allow Flash on our home systems :( I'll see if I can spin up a virtual machine and take a look. $\endgroup$ – Organic Marble Jul 14 '18 at 15:50
