Outpost No More

The Outpost Tavern, at the corner of NASA Route 1 and Egret Bay Blvd, was for decades a hangout for astronauts and NASA employees. The walls were decorated with photos of famous patrons and even a US Navy tailhook. In the movie SPACE COWBOYS it was scene of a barroom brawl. The Outpost suddenly closed in January 2010. Early Saturday morning the building caught fire and burned to the ground. Here is the wreckage from my camera Sunday. What a shame! If only there were Time and Space to preserve the Outpost as a museum.

UPDATE: Since the structure was sitting on blocks with no power or utilities, the fire is very suspicious. The Outpost originally opened its doors around 1980. Another fire in 2005 almost closed it. Recently the tavern's ownership was in dispute between its operators and the owners of the land. Originally scheduled to close January 31, 2010, the Outpost shut down mid-January when the proprietors found themselves locked out. The end of the Outpost is shrouded in mystery.

Good to see you comment at Rand's regarding the elites. I would be honored if you found a post of mine worthy of comment.

Now, on topic... the fire seems a bit suspicious, doesn't it? I wonder if business had been off? It's sad that history is lost in such a way.

Back to off topic (forgive me) is there any professional group supportive of a changing value for c?

You have a great blog that I always enjoy visiting (my efforts are not so wonderful, but I'm just a computer bum.)

Good to hear from you, Ken. Since the building had no electricity or utilities, the fire is very suspicious.

There's no formal "c change" society yet, but neither is there one for most scientific theories. May 18-20, 2009 at the Lorentz Center in Netherlands was a workshop on "Varying Fundamental Constants." As followers of this blog know, the International Astronomical Union had a Joint Discussion in Rio de Janeiro on "Are the Fundamental Constants Varying in Space-time?" We must have more meetings like that!

I am glad you enjoy the blog. I must comment on your blog soon.
