THEY BUILT THE ROCKET ENGINES THAT SENT MEN TO THE MOON...
... They were exposed to radiation and toxic chemicals without their knowledge or consent.
They need our help now.
TheAeroSpace.org was created to honor the personnel of Santa Susana Field Laboratory (SSFL) Areas I, II and III: North American Aviation's Space & Information Division (NAA/S&ID), Rocketdyne. They were employed by a Department of Energy (DOE) contractor, and exposed to radiation and toxic chemicals without their
knowledge or consent. To avoid accountability for worker exposures and
costly environmental cleanup, DOE misled the public about the activities of the
Atomic Energy Commission (AEC, DOE's predecessor agency) at SSFL over
the course of nearly five decades, effectively barring thousands of sick
workers from access to federal benefits designed to help them while potentially ignoring radiological contamination at SSFL. Our
mission is to set the record straight. We've compiled documentation that
justifies inclusion of Areas I, II and III Rocketdyne personnel of SSFL to the Energy Employee Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA, or "the Act").
