On Friday, the Space & Rocket Center laid off five employees this past Friday and converted seven more from full-time to part-time or temporary positions.

It is reported this will save the Center $500,000 in the new fiscal year.

The layoffs were reported on Friday by the Huntsville Times. Visit this link for the article.

Wes over at Sprocketeers has his own take on the situation as well.

I have nothing to add other then, if they’re looking to save money, I do hope loans have been refinanced in light of record low interest rates.
