Brevard County is situated along the east coast of Florida, approximately one hour from Orlando. Dubbed the "Space Coast," the area is home to NASA's Kennedy Space Center (KSC), from which NASA's Mercury, Gemini and Apollo rockets all launched, as well as NASA's space shuttle fleet. Today, the area remains one of the world's primary launch sites, with commercial space exploration companies including SpaceX taking advantage of active launch facilities at KSC and the adjacent Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
Many high-tech industries and companies either maintain their headquarters or have facilities in Brevard County including Harris Corporation, Northrop Grumman Corporation, Lockheed Martin Space Systems, United Launch Alliance, Intersil, Craig Technologoes and many more.
More than a half million people call the Space Coast home. One quarter of them are in the workforce and 45% are between the ages of 20 to 54. Of those over 25, 90% have a high school diploma or higher, 28% hold at least a bachelor’s degree, and just over 11% have earned graduate degrees. The median house hold income is $50,100 with 28% of the population earning over $75,000 per year.
