Marshall Space Flight Center, ca. 1960s

The Marshall Space Flight Center is named for George C. Marshall, the U.S. Army's World War II chief of staff and the creator of the Marshall Plan, and is the heart of the U.S. space program. Located in Huntsville, Madison County, the center, along with Redstone Arsenal, has transformed the area into a high-density job center for engineers and physicists.
