Caption: NASA launch control centre periscope. Footage of a launch periscope being used in 1963 at the NASA facilities at Merrit Island, near Cape Canaveral, Florida, USA. The launch control centres are in underground bunkers, shielded from the rocket gases and flames. The periscope is used to observe conditions on the surface. This footage is from the Presidential tour by John F. Kennedy that took place here on 16 November 1963. This was Kennedy's third visit to Cape Canaveral, taking place a week before his assassination. During this tour, Kennedy was briefed on the Gemini and Apollo programmes, and took an aerial tour of the facility. The site was renamed the Kennedy Space Center in his honour on 29 November 1963.
