An air traffic control tower at the Shuttle Landing Facility on NASA's Kennedy Space Center. The facility was built for the Return to Flight mission STS-114 and the landing of Shuttle Discovery. The structure rises 110 feet over the midpoint of the runway and offers air traffic controllers a 360-degree view of Kennedy Space Center, Cape Canaveral Air Force Station and north Brevard County. It manages all landings and departures from the SLF, including air traffic within the Kennedy Space Center-Cape Canaveral restricted airspace. The facility provides a 24-hour weather-observing facility providing official hourly weather observations for the SLF and the Cape Canaveral vicinity, including special observations for all launches and landings.
