Space shuttle: Community reflects on programme's end


As final preparations are made for Nasa's ast space shuttle mission, due to lift off early next month, the BBC's Science Correspondent Pallab Ghosh visited Florida.

He spoke to former Nasa engineer and business owner Jerry Mulberry and Nasa contractor Mark Hubbard as they reflected on the end of the shuttle programme.

The two men also spoke about how it would impact on the surrounding communities which have been built up over decades of space travel from the Kennedy Space Centre in Florida.
