Documentary
This quasi-fictionalized documentary imagines a deserted, storm-damaged Kennedy Space Center. With wildlife encroaching, radio transmissions track a massive hurricane and direct any remaining people to escape. Finally, a rocket (in fact the space shuttle Discovery, in the first liftoff since the Columbia disaster) launches through the eye of the storm.
