Haunting images of NASA's abandoned launch sites revealed

Ace photographer Roland Miller from Illinois in the US has put together photographs of abandoned NASA launch sites in a book.

The book titled "Abandoned In Place" has stunning images of 16 space launch sites, research facilities and museums from US states like Virginia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, Kansas, Utah, New Mexico and California, among others.

Most of these historic facilities are located on secure military or NASA facilities that limit its access to common people.

"By my estimates, half of the facilities I have photographed no longer exist," Miller was quoted as saying in a Daily Mail report.

In 1984, Miller moved to Florida to teach photography and was subsequently contacted by an environmental engineer at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

This led Miller to spend a large part of his life travelling across the country to document the forgotten history of the space programme.
