More details of President Barack Obama’s visit to NASA’s Kennedy Space Center (KSC) are emerging. It is now clear that KSC’s operations and checkout building (and not the center’s training auditorium), refurbished for use with the Constellation programme’s Orion crew exploration vehicle, will be the stage for the head of state’s speech about his plan that cancels that Moon return programme. Is this proof Obama can’t do irony? The official security alert is below

The O&C Facility will be closed to all personnel on Thursday, April 15, from 7:00 a.m to 7:00 p.m., to accommodate President Obama’s visit.  All services within the building, to include but not limited to, fitness center, Rehabworks, massage, cafeteria, sundry store, etc., will be closed.  No access will be permitted unless previously authorized and included on an approved entry authorization list.  Parking will not be permitted in the O&C east parking lot or the front curb parking area.  All vehicles, including GSA vehicles, must be removed from these areas no later than 7 a.m. on Thursday, April 15th.  The O&C west parking lot will be partially closed.  All vehicles, including GSA vehicles, must relocate to the western-most portion of this parking lot (closer to the Training Auditorium).
