ABANDONED: Aerojet Rocket Facility | Part I

The Aerojet Rocket Facility is an interesting relic of the space race days. This location operated from 1963 to 1969, testing rockets using solid fuel. By 1969, NASA decided to utilize liquid fuel for the Apollo's Saturn V rockets, effectively putting any employees of this facility out of work. Through it's operation, two rocket silos were built into the ground - one of which still houses a rocket. The remaining rocket has since been covered with cement, leaving it inaccessible to casual explorers.

By now, much of the remaining facility is a concrete skeleton covered in graffiti, surrounded by the Everglades swamp.

This facility is huge - so expect more posts about it to follow!

  1. Ah I love the Pinky and the Brain piece! I appreciate good graffiti so much more than just rando spraypainted genitalia :)
