Question RV parks at Titusville/Cape and loss of jobs ?

What is the best guess as to how the RV communities are going to weather the tremendous loss of jobs at the cape ?

Kerry

probably not that much
the shuttle program is ended, not manned space flight
KSC is the hub for the future and wont be going away.
plus a huge museum draw, Atlantis will be on display in a 8-12 months

and orion will be flying from there

i see a small slow down but then a re-emergence

shuttle was a low earth orbit machine, never designed to go the moon or other places afar.

455 am landing was COOOOOOL this morning

WFTV Channel 9 in Orlando stated all jobs lost (not just on KSC) may be as much as 23,000.

The number of tourist won't increase that much over current visitors.

Maybe google how many jobs lost at KSC will clarify things.

Russia and China are now flying U.S. Astronauts into space. Who would have thought?

when i worked up at redstone ( home of Marshall space flight and ISS controls)
we called it the contractor shuffle
one day a contract would end and another contractor picked up a new one, so jobs were lost and gained in pretty steady numbers all year long.
I changed companies three times in two years......and yes they were listed as losses even though my desk never moved, nor did the work change names, only the company name on my cards


KSC is a bit different, but ....many were retiring at the end of the shuttle program
and contractors move around and many will move over to the Orion projects and some to the other remaining commercial entities that will be providing commercial lifts of men and supplies

i would surmise a very high number will be simply moved to other contractor companies in the area.

i would also stick it on a limb by saying less than 6500 total actually are unemployed from the HUGE space program, in the KSC area.
we as Americans should have made our priorities felt more and the replacement spacecraft and missions beyond low earth orbit would have been further along than they are now.

I'm going to guess there will be little or even no impact to the RV business. Shuttle launches or not, the area is still a great place to spend some time. We spent a month there last fall and plan to do it again soon.
