Ooo, Josh …

Look at the ball of fire!

A Day In The Life — Ten minutes on Florida’s Space Coast, including watching, with a young family, seeing its first manned launch (the space shuttle Discovery), its fiery launch and rapid ascent, streaking across the mostly clear blue, Florida sky, away from the Cape, on its way to the International Space Station, orbiting 300 miles above, outside the atmosphere of Earth.

A reminder of my mother (who is present this day), fifty years earlier, taking me, my sister, and my brother into our front yard in Cocoa, to watch Alan Shepard become the first American to see outer space.

On this launch day (2005), you’ll hear Grandma Rose shriek excitedly, before loudly calling out to her young grandson,

“Look at the ball of fire Josh. Look at the ball of fire.”

Weeki Wachee
GOD, GUNS, GAS, AND FRESH WATER IN THE FLORIDA JUNGLE
Hope Springs Eternal. For thousands of years, pools of crystal clear fresh water have nourished Florida’s interior. With the coming of civilization these natural springs were used as local swimming holes, and later Hollywood movie sets, River Boat ports, Roadside Attractions, and of course, a source of bottled water revenue.

MERMAIDS ON THE MOON

In the video (above) look and listen as you make one of Florida’s most interesting crossings, on State Road 50, from the ancient Weeki Wachee Springs, through phosphorous mines, pine forests, orange groves, ranches for both cattle and horses, into Walt Disney’s Magic Kingdom, at the I-4 Crossroads in Orlando, on to the small town of Christmas, into the wetlands and crossing the St Johns River and its population of Alligators, Airboats, and any number of deer, boar, birds, reptiles, fish, insects, and many other Florida River Creatures.

All this before the last, lonely outpost, the Lone Cabbage Fish Camp  (now a popular, tiki bar-like, patio/wooden deck) burgers, fish, and alligator restaurant.

Final leg of SR-50 sees outskirts of town shack and trailer park neighborhoods before crossing I-95 and into the commercialized city of Titusville. Amidst the car dealerships, Wal-Mart, Target, and all the Applebees, Cracker Barrels, and other big corporate eateries, a few vintage establishments remain. The Waffle House and Southway shopping plaza still stand proudly as you come to the end of the road at US1. Looking across the Indian River toward Merritt Island and Cape Canaveral, the VAB (Vehicle/Vertical Assembly Building) and Complex #39 and the large, steel gantries marking SACRED GROUND — launch pads (A and B), the last spot on Earth touched by the twelve American Astronauts who walked on the Moon, and looked back to see their home, fragile, floating free in the endless blackness of space.

Independent Florida Alligator — photographs taken while on the staff of the weekday newspaper,  that served the University of Florida and the communities in and around Gainesville, Florida.

1906 The Alligator was founded as an “independent” newspaper in 1906, and remained “independent” until the state (Florida) took control in 1912. The paper remained property of the state, until “radical” editors in the late 1960s began to more stridently express their liberal (mostly anti-Vietnam) opinion, that couldn’t have pissed the ruling authorities off more, than in 1971, when Alligator editor Ron Sachs took Jane Roe’s side in her argument against district attorney Henry Wade and the state of Texas, where abortion was illegal, except when necessary to save the mother’s life.

Diamond Teeth Mary McClain @ Tobacco Road  — At the time (1986), within a month’s time, I had seen Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown, Matt Murphy, and Johnny Copeland, in the red room, upstairs at Tobacco Road, Miami’s oldest bar, on Miami Ave and 7th Street, on the Miami River, just south of downtown. On this night, Diamond Teeth Mary would take the upstairs stage, accompanied by another Floridian, guitarist Eric Hokkinen, baby-faced, 21-year old, who was also the Florida State Fiddle Champion.

The Girl Who Got Away

August 24, 1992 — For Decades, as they approached Miami from the north, I-95 drivers were welcomed by the well known, fanny-baring, Coppertone Girl welcomed I95 drivers as they entered North Miami.  category 4 hurricane named Andrew knocked her to the ground, and shook the whole of South Florida. The next morning, after the sky had cleared, and the wind went eerily calm, I tried, but failed, to take the broken girl home.

 

dave.

1993 — While on the Miami Herald staff, contributed to the paper’s Public Service Pulitzer Prize, for its (1992) coverage of Hurricane Andrew, as a photographer, writer, and special section (Diversions) editor and art director.

Diversions — A 16-page, broad sheet, weekly section, made with the (“Best Of”) the Miami Herald’s previous week’s content, including that written for Tropic, the Herald’s legendary Sunday magazine. Diversions was developed as a vehicle to deliver news and Miami Herald entertainment to those (more than two million) Miami/Dade County residents who weren’t Herald subscribers.  In the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew, Diversions served a significant role, in delivering important, post-storm, life-sustaining information to a South Florida community, much, for weeks after, without electricity.

Driving into Rockledge from the south, we turn off US1 onto Coquina Road, not much more than a sand trail that leads down to the Indian River (intracoastal waterway) and one of Florida’s most scenic rides.

Five miles north on the palm-lined and oak-shaded Rockledge Drive, including a ride through Cocoa Village, across SR520, and onto the higher elevated, north side of what locals call The River Road.

At the end of the ride, we arrive at our first destination. The old, rusty, nearly fallen, corrugated metal building was once the popular seafood restaurant and nightspot called Hub’s Inn.

Today, it marks a favorite spot from where to watch the rockets fly.

Looking across the Indian River, toward Merritt Island, the monstrous Vertical/Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB) looms large. The NASA logo and American flag painted on its side are clearly visible from ten miles away, and its silhouette dominant on a horizon mostly made up of a long line of palmetto scrub that covers the wide, sandy cape that has always defined Florida’s East Coast.

SIGNING OFF — After every launch from Cape Canaveral, each rocket leaves its own, unique signature. An after cloud that lingers in the tropical breeze until it dissipates slowly. This infinity-shaped cloud was written by the space shuttle Discovery (STS-133), after it’s final launch, February 24, 2011, on its way to re-supply the International Space Station. Within a year, two shuttles followed Discovery, and NASA’s 40-year shuttle mission was over.

 

— U2/NASA

MESSAGE FROM ABOVEMark Kelley, commander of the next to last space shuttle mission, was invited by U2 frontman Bono to take five minutes of his concert audience’s time to deliver a message of peace love and unity, from the International Space Station, to the people of Earth, especially to his wife, Gabrielle Giffords.

THOSE MAGNIFICENT MEN IN THEIR FLYING MACHINES 

 

May 16, 2011 — The penultimate mission of NASA‘s Space Shuttle program,(STS-134), and  Endeavour‘s 25th and last flight.

Mark Kelly was the flight’s mission commander, responsible for delivering the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer and an ExPRESS Logistics Carrier to the International Space Station.

It was thought that STS-134 could have been the last, with most Republicans in Congress opposing the funding required to launch STS-135, but as soon as February, NASA announced definitely that STS-135 would fly, “regardless” of Congress’ denial of funding.

July 8, 2011 — Taking advantage of the time and preparations necessary for STS-335, the “On Need” launch, the mission that would have been necessary if the STS-134 crew became stranded in orbit. That made Atlantis (STS-135) the last. Two weeks after launch, upon its return and landing at the Kennedy Space Center, the 135th mission, and the entirety of NASA’s 30-year Space Shuttle Program, was over.

The retirement of NASA‘s Space Shuttle fleet took place from March to July 2011. Discovery (STS-133), March 9, 2011 was the first of the three active Space Shuttles to be retired Endeavour (STS-134), June 1; and Atlantis (STS-135), ended the Shuttle program when it landed at The Kennedy Space Center (Cape Canaveral), July 21, 2011.
