I started the above thread because I was looking for data specific to Pioneer 10 & 11. But my search for data encompasses all NASA launched unmanned spacecraft.

Here is one of my sources. The launch rate is unbelievable.

I'm not sure exactly what you're looking for, but I think you'd be more likely to find it at http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/

All the NASA missions I've worked on (except perhaps for Mars Observer, I can't remember) have delivered their hardware directly to PHSF or SAEF-2 (or Astrotech).

I am active on that forum and know that it wouldn't much more help. Too much of a SpaceX and SLS/Shuttle crowd.

Re P10 & 11 at least, you might want to contact the NASA Ames history office. I'm sure that a Google search will provide full contact info for them and any other projects of interest to you.

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.

Again, I'm not really sure what you're trying to learn in general. I'm sure you're aware of the series "Chronology of KSC and KSC-Related Events" that can be found on NTRS. It varies widely in level of detail but, for example, from the 1992 issue we learn that Mars Observer was initially delivered to Hangar AO in June 1992, moved to PHSF in July, and then went out to LC40 in August. It got contaminated by particulates during the passage of Hurricane Andrew in late August and had to be taken back to PHSF to be cleaned (that was a lot of fun, I can assure you) and then it was taken back out to LC40 and launched on September 25.

If you intend to go back to the roots, you might be interested in visiting the Historical Technical Museum in Peenemünde:
http://www.peenemuende.de/en/gallery/
Part of the rocket and space technology was developped at Peenemünde in the early 1940s, and some of the technical staff of the US space program came from there after WWII.
The location of the actual launch facilities (late 1930s, and early 1940s) on a small island in the Baltic See, however, isn't (easily) accessible for the public, in general.
