Executive Order 11129 of November 29, 1963

Designating Certain Facilities of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and of the Department of Defense, in the State of Florida, as the John F. Kennedy Space Center


Whereas President John F. Kennedy lighted the imagination of our people when he set the moon as our target and man as the means to reach it; and


Whereas the installations now to be renamed are a center and symbol of our country's peaceful assault on space; and


Whereas it is in the nature of this assault that it should test the limits of our youth and grace, our strength and wit, our vigor and perseverance qualities fitting to the memory of John F. Kennedy;


Now, Therefore, by virtue of the authority in me as President of the United States, I hereby designate the facilities of the Launch Operations Center of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration and the facilities of Station No. 1 of the Atlantic Missile Range, in the State of Florida, as the John F. Kennedy Space Center; and such facilities shall be hereafter known and referred to by that name.


Signature of Lyndon B. Johnson
