The Fountainhead

The Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex has unveiled another segment of their new entrance.

The new entrance opened last September; click here for photos. But work continues on the entrance area, and this weekend KSCVC unveiled a new fountain and NASA “meatball” logo.

It appears that there's some sort of “show” associated with the fountain. At times, it's doing nothing at all. At other times, it's squirting water. And late today, as I left, I heard a very loud recording of the STS-135 Atlantis launch playing as the water shot very high into the sky at T-0.

So until I figure out exactly what is the “show” here are photos from this morning and this afternoon.

UPDATE December 24, 2012 — The fence came down today from around the old KSCVC entrance. Here's what it looks like now:

And here's what it used to look like:
