Publishers Note – Summer 2023

Publisher's Note

Florida is a state of newcomers and many of our recent arrivals don’t realize how historical the state is, probably through no fault of their own. That’s because most school children are taught about the establishment of Jamestown in 1607 or the arrival of the pilgrims in Plymouth in 1620. But little time is spent — if any at all — on the founding and settlement, much earlier, of St. Augustine in 1565.

Something for everyone

Space Coast Boating & Fishing, Travel & Outdoors, Wildlife

Living on the Space Coast has its perks, and one of them is that it offers all kinds of boat tours for anyone who wants to get out on the water — airboats to kayaks, day or night, scenic and wildlife. Nature figures highly in the tours, as does bioluminescence where underwater creatures that create light turn the surface to glowing colors, and of course — being the Space Coast — rocket launches leaving arcing, brilliant white trails against the blue sky.

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.
