The US Space and Rocket Center (USSRC)

Untitled 01aUntitled 1a While in Huntsville Alabama visiting friends, I went to the The US Space and Rocket Center (USSRC) on July 3, 2003. The Rocket Park at the USSRC was called “the finest rocket collection in the world” by Mercury astronaut John Glenn. In the park, 27 missiles and rockets show how Army rocketry launched America’s space program and gave rise to NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center. It contains all of the Redstone family of rockets, including the Redstone IRBM, Mercury-Redstone, Jupiter C, Jupiter IRBM and Juno II. Also on display are the Mercury-Atlas, V-1, and Saturn I rockets. I have included several “Stitched” or Panoramic photos I made by “combining” original photos together.
