The Saturn V rocket that launched astronauts from zero to outer space in less than three minutes was designed, built, managed and tested in North Alabama. It was the most critical component to the success of the awe-inspiring mission and it operated without failure. Today, this Saturn V rocket, restored to its Apollo-era readiness, resides in the Davidson Center at the U.S. Space and Rocket Museum in Huntsville as a reminder of the heritage that launched North Alabama into its present economic success. Rockets are still produced here at a state-of-the-art 1.5-million SF United Launch Alliance facility in Decatur. ULA produces the Atlas V, Delta III and IV and the upcoming Vulcan rockets.
