Welcome to Titusville [VIDEO]

Here is a short but powerful documentary that's linked on Sayfie Review this morning, titled "Welcome to Titusville," about the devastating impact of the end of the space shuttle era on that small town:

Atlantis is scheduled to return from its final mission (STS-135) this Thursday, July 21, 2011. The shuttle will land at the Kennedy Space Center in the early hours of the morning, shortly before 6 a.m. EDT.

I can't believe that this week is the last time I'll hear that famous "Boom! Boom!" echo through the Florida skies...well, at least for the foreseeable future.

I think we're all more than a little sad right now. It is truly the end of an era.

  1. Economist predicted doom and gloom after the WWII spending ended. What happened? The opposite. the economy boomed. There will be a adjustment period of a year where economic activity declines, but if the government stays out of the way and lets the free market work there is no reason the Space Coast cannot rebound in a couple of years. For specific details and numbers go to my blog and read it.

    About 3/4 of the way down.
