Final Flight: Florida's Space Coast at the End of the Shuttle Era

Space Shuttle Atlantis

July 4-8, 2011 on 90.7 WMFE-FM
Space Shuttle Atlantis lifted off from Kennedy Space Center at 11:26 a.m. on July 8th, on the final mission of NASA’s 30-year-old shuttle program. That historic day is already creating monumental uncertainty in Brevard County and on the Space Coast. About 9,000 people in the area work on the shuttle program, and many have done so for their entire career. Most of them are now losing their jobs, with major repercussions for their own families and for the region's economy. In the days leading up to the final launch, 90.7’s Morning Edition and 90.7’s Intersection broadcast special coverage focusing on the shuttle's impact on the local area and the future of the Space Coast's aerospace business and workforce in a post-shuttle world.

Follow The Money

WMFE 90.7 FM's Follow the Money was an occasional series that tracked how the federal stimulus money was being spent in Central Florida, from schools and roads, to law enforcement and health care and beyond. Who’s getting the promised new jobs, what local projects are getting a kick-start, and how much of the money actually ended up staying in the region?
