Up Close with Robert Cabana
Up Close With Kennedy Space Center Director Robert Cabana It was a challenge that could have withered the stoutest heart. After three decades and 135 flights the Space Shuttle program was being retired. A source of pride for every American and a source of jobs for thousands of workers at Kennedy Space Center (KSC) came to an end in 2011.

Building the Unconventional CEO By Josh Field How Does She Do It All? Google “‘Carol Craig’ AND ‘Craig Technologies’” and about 3,700 results appear, so needless to say this self-described “accidental entrepreneur” has garnered a lot of attention over the past decade. In 2009, SpaceCoast Business magazine named Craig as its “Business Leader of the Year,” one of the first in a string of awards and recognitions bestowed on the founder and CEO of the Cape Canaveral-based government contractor of technology, engineering and manufacturing services and products. So, six years later, I sat down with Carol again, not so much to talk ...
