TALLAHASSEE, Fla — Florida Space Day had almost concluded when Florida Senator Thad Altman stopped by for a visit. Given that the Space Coast falls in Sen. Altman’s district, we had contacted him earlier in the day and were pleased when he stopped by to speak with us. We quickly set back up the camera and found a suitable backdrop to record the interview in front of. However, the audio connection wasn’t all that it could have been and our camera’s battery died during our first attempt to conduct the interview—all due to our haste. It was a wild end to a whirlwind of a day. Thankfully, Sen. Altman was all grace, allowing us time to hustle up a fresh battery. Tomorrow we will conclude our coverage of Florida Space Day with a compilation of some of the more interesting interviews of the day, a major business announcement coming out of Brazil, as well as remarks from Florida’s Lieutenant Governor Jennifer Carroll.
