Page under construction---culling information on this subject....
"Mysteries" may be to broad of word to use. Covers a lot of diverse subjects.
But.....sometimes I wonder......or I would not have made this page.
Kennedy Space Center is a paradoxical collection of ancient history and modern events bordering on science fiction.
A menagerie of ambiguous buildings, tunnels, eccentric engineers, NASA, Air Force and Navy bases, a National Park, an endangered species wildlife refuge, tourist mecca-visitor center & nude beach, giant alligators, all set upon an ancient hurricane swept barrier island; where the bones of Ice age fauna mingle with Spanish gold and fragments of exploded rockets. (Space is a harsh mistress)
Hence the esoteric contradictions of mounds, ruins, shipwrecks & top secret robotic space shuttles.
KSC is now deemed a “Multi-User Space Port” –a transformational epicenter of risk taking and ambiguous bureaucratic red tape. A space port to the Red Planet Mars. (so cool)
Life on a rocket base....Yield to the big stuff...
Of course this means a tsunami of possibilities, of cryptic stories, unique mysteries, dark places & obscure buildings. A unique harbinger of random tales, and a pensive obscure missive of the past & dreamy nocturne of the future.
In plain words: A really fun place to work!
Rocket launches, they just never stop. And now we have landings again. Sometimes secret, sometimes not....

And artifacts from the pre-European conquest

I have already created a few web pages of just plain curiosities of the Space Center:
*A piece of torn metal found on the restricted beach -a rocket part?
* A mysterious hand cast in the ruins. Almost sad

No explanation of the Fred Mystery
B52 crash on the cape. Not a mystery in the classic sense but more or less forgotten history & a great 1968 newspaper article.
Abandoned buildings dot the space center and Air Force Base
That an alien? No. SCAPE suit
