Intersection: Falcon Heavy, Welcome Home & Shawn Theodore
For long time Titusville residents, the launch of SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy rocket will evoke memories of the shuttle blasting off into space, and even launches from an earlier time in the space program.
On this episode of Intersection, we hear from the manager of Titusville’s Dixie Crossroads restaurant, Greg Holladay, about what Falcon Heavy means for the space coast. And 90.7’s space reporter Brendan Byrne joins Embry Riddle professor Dr. Eric Seedhouse to discuss what this rocket launch signifies for the space program and aspirations for exploration of the moon and beyond.
The Central Florida Commission on homelessness tackles a tough housing market in a bid to place 129 people in permanent homes. Hear from the CEO of the commission Shelley Lauten and from Andrew Williams, who spent seven years on the streets before finally getting the keys to his own home through the commission’s Welcome Home project.
And a discussion with photographer Shawn Theodore, who documents disappearing African American communities, creating works that evoke and re-interpret classical works of art.
Theodore’s photos are on display in Orlando for the first time.
