President Barack Obama will cap a visit to the Kennedy Space Center this week with a pair of fundraisers for the Democratic National Committee, one of them at the home of pop stars Gloria and Emilio Estefan.

Both fundraisers are in Miami, the White House announced Monday. The second is at a hotel.

Obama will travel to the fundraisers Thursday evening after a speech at Cape Canaveral, Fla., where he will discuss his administration's vision for human spaceflight, controversial after he shelved former President George W. Bush's moon mission.
