Episode III - AeroJet

Our third episode looks at one part of South Florida's small role in the space race: the Aerojet rocket facility near Homestead in southwest Dade. Though it never justified the rosy optimism that accompanied its construction, it was the site of several large rocket tests that lit up the skies of Miami in the 1960s. The abandoned facility still stands on the edge of the Everglades, apparently forgotten by all except vandals (and the South Florida Water Management District).
