It’s been way too long since we indulged in our obsession with abandoned spaces, but now we return to our pet topic with a real doozy. As Maggie Koerth-Baker over at Boing Boing explains, “In 1963, a company called Aerojet built a rocket factory in the Everglades, hoping to win the contract to build the rockets that would send the Apollo missions to the moon. In the process, they built the world’s largest solid fuel rocket. When they lost the contract, the site was left to rot.” Click through to take a video tour of the creepy ruins as they are today.
