Space, Science & Florida

Updated: Dec 2, 2021

As someone born and raised in Florida, trips to Kennedy Space Center are nearly akin to trips to Disney World, and the space industry is an essential part of the state's history and culture. While I quickly realized I don't have the guts to be an astronaut during kid astronaut training in fourth grade, my fascination with space exploration, science and Florida's environment remains.


Here are some of my favorite space and science stories.
