I enjoyed your story on the Aerojet plant. I live right down the road from the Thiokol plant that tested the other booster that competed against this one. My family has worked at the facility since it began. I enjoyed the history lesson you gave us. This location where I live is being looked at to be opened as a space port so I have been trying to look up some of the old photos and films I have but not much has survived.

Google Earth photos dated 3/6/2013 show some trucks parked near the Aerojet Cast and Cure Shed. I wonder what they're up to?

Excellent job on the Aerojet site. I grew up i Miami and a family friend worked for Aerojet and took me down to Homestead for the last test, it was spectacular to say the least.

I recently stumbled onto a story and pictures of the Aerojet General facility near Homestead, Fl....then I found your article about the same spooky inverted rocker motor in the swamp. Turns out I was employed by Aerojet General in 1965 to drive a truck loaded with solid rocker fuel from the manufacturing facility to the rocker silo facility. Thinking back almost 50 years...I do remember the security at the time and how crazy it was for them to let a college kid handle a truck full of rocket fuel. Anyways, thanks for the interesting article.
