Columns by Denor:

The very first cover of Florida Trend in April 1958 featured an illustration of a futuristic rocket blasting off from Cape Canaveral. Just six months earlier, the Soviets had launched Sputnik, the world's first satellite to transmit radio signals back to Earth, sending the Space Race into overdrive. The U.S. countered with the launch of Explorer 1 from Cape Canaveral in early 1958. Harris Mullen, Florida Trend's founding publisher, was a visionary. He could clearly see the rocket testing and launch activity at the cape was significant, but even he could not have imagined the role the Space Race would play in shaping Florida as we know it today.
