"We have about half of all the state’s space employment," said City of Kent Chief Economic Development Officer Bill Ellis. He said the last study the city has on space employment places 5,500 jobs just within Kent city limits, out of more than 11,000 direct space jobs in Washington state.

The City of Kent is planning to build a playground for kids starting in early 2022, and who knows what that could inspire.
