Huntsville, Alabama

With small beginnings from cotton and railways, Huntsville saw revitalized growth during WWII with the creation of multiple U.S. munitions factories. Post war, these factories lead to the establishment of NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in 1960. Today, students can gain a hands-on appreciation for space travel with a trip to NASA’s Space Camp. There, students learn about space flight and training in a fun, interactive environment.
