Florida Space Day

Florida Space Day in Tallahassee March 3, 2010

"Key representatives from Florida's space industry will visit Tallahassee to participate in Florida Space Day and share the challenges the industry faces in ensuring Florida remains at the forefront of the nation's space program. Florida Space Day is a milestone event that presents an opportunity to educate and bring awareness to Florida legislators on the significance of the aerospace industry and its impact on Florida's economy."

"With just four space shuttle missions left and 23,000 job losses looming when the orbiters stop flying, Gov.
