Space Miami

Director Joey Daoud will be joining us on the podcast next week to talk battle bots and high school for his feature documentary Bots High, but in the meantime I wanted to share his well crafted short doc Space Miami with you.

In 1963 Aerojet-General built a rocket manufacturing plant in the middle of the Everglades. They were hoping to build rockets for the Apollo moon mission. The rockets were built and tested in a 150 ft. deep silo, the deepest hole ever dug in Florida […] The site was abandoned in 1969, along with the rocket in the silo. It’s been sitting there for nearly 50 years.
