Sunday before last, I was pullig my 5th wheel down the street in front of the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center, enjoying the rocket garden and just happened to notice this. So, if the “cow jumped OVER the moon” then why couldn’t she land on it? That must be what they are studying. Here is the photo to prove it.(The sign in the background reads “Marshall Space Flight Center” with some rocket motors laying around in the yard). Next thing you know, they’ll be putting rockets up on jacks on the front lawn. The Aliens must think we’re a bunch of rednecks! Huntsville, Alabama is nicknamed “Rocket City” because it is home to both Redstone Arsenal and the Marshall Space Flight Center. The Army’s Redstone Arsenal is also home to the International Space Station Payload Operations Center.The U.S. Space and Rocket Center is a museum that showcases the history of the U.S. space program. It was the brainchild of Dr. Wernher von Braun who was the director of the Marshall Space Flight Center when it developed rockets to send our astronauts to the moon. It houses more than 1,500 pieces – including rockets, motors, and all sorts of space junk.
Hours of operation are every day from 9 to 5 (except important holidays)
