  SPACE COAST SOLAR CO-OP

Friday marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 1 fire that killed three astronauts during a routine test on the launchpad. The accident shocked NASA as the agency was rushing to meet President Kennedy's 1961 challenge to have men on the moon by the end of the decade.

The test was a dress rehearsal for the Apollo 1 crew — Gus Grissom, Ed White and Roger Chaffee. The ultimate goal was to check out the command module, NASA's first three-man spacecraft that would take astronauts to the moon.

The mission of the department of engineering systems is to prepare engineers and scientists for leadership roles in business organizations. Our educational objectives are to achieve steady enrollment growth and pursue practical funded research; to provide engineers and scientists the skills to expand their areas of responsibility in the workplace; and to update the skills of engineers and scientists in their fields of specialization.  more info  

Far more complex than the Hollywood portrayal of the camel-riding wanderer clad in flowing white robes and searching for water, Saudi Arabian Bedouins are diverse, skilled craftspeople, dedicated to family, hospitality and honor. The way in which these iconic nomads learned to adapt to an environment as inhospitable as the desert is a marvel of anthropological and artistic ingenuity.

Organized by the Museum of International Folk Art in Santa Fe, The Red that Colored the World translates the cochineal story into three dimensions, following the precious bug juice and its use in art from Mexico and South America, to Europe, the U.S. and beyond. Highlighting textiles, sculpture, paintings, manuscripts, decorative arts, clothing and more—the exhibition explores the history of cochineal and the seductive visual nature of red.

Arbor Day in Florida

It Shoulda Been You

Jan 18, 2017

Fresh from a David Hyde Pierce directed Broadway hit run last year, the Henegar Center It Shoulda Been You serves up a far from traditional wedding comedy. Proving that when it comes to that madcap wedding day, this twistedly twisting plot just might take the (wedding) cake.

Is it a revival of some long-lost screwball classic? No, it's a snappy musical comedy with a strong cast under the sprightly and masterful direction of Hank Rion based on the book and lyrics by Brian Hargrove and music and concept by Barbara Anselmi. The production runs through January 29.
