Seeing red

Moments in Space History, Space and Aviation

Ten-year-old Pat Duggin had a backyard seat for what he describes as free fireworks from Cape Canaveral.

Next Stop: Mars

Moments in Space History, Space and Aviation

Planning for a crew’s health in deep space is as essential as for a successful rocket launch, experts say. Researchers at the Florida Institute of Technology and the University of Central Florida have active roles in that work to ensure astronauts’ physical and mental health for the 140-million-mile trek from Earth to Mars. Radiation, isolation, distance, gravity fields and closed environments are the high-risk factors of all space exploration that scientists take into account while planning for the great crewed journeys.

Moving right along

Home & Garden, Renovation321

In large part it would be made worthwhile by the fact that it overlooks the space center and the ever-changing waters of the Indian River with all its wildlife.

By the bottle

Eat & Drink, Lifestyle, Taste of the Space Coast

Midweek evenings are not usually busy at restaurants, but you wouldn’t know it from the crowd gathered a recent Wednesday at Café Margaux. The Cocoa Village restaurant was hosting a gustative journey of pairings created by Margaux Executive Chef Erol Tugrul with tastings of rare single-parcel French malbecs from Chateau Chambert, one of the first vineyards in the world to embrace the growing trend of truly organic and biodynamic winemaking.

Going native

Environment, Home & Garden

In recent years there has been a booming interest in Florida native plants. What’s the attraction? First off, they require little maintenance. There’s some TLC when they are first planted, but after that they don’t require fertilizer, trimming and very little watering.

Healing haven

Nonprofit spotlight, Wildlife

The unobtrusive blue sign by U.S. 1 in Palm Shores provides little indication of the excellent hospital behind it. Like other excellent healthcare facilities, this hospital boasts of an ICU and nursery, outdoor spaces where patients can chill out and a corps of compassionate, seasoned staff and volunteers eager to help patients, who, by the way, never have to file insurance claims and are never expected to pay a penny for the care.
