Alabama prepares for role in a new space race

Alabama is seeing a new surge in aerospace investment as companies like Blue Origin and Aeroject Rocketdyne bring hundreds of new jobs to the state and build new facilities to put them to work.

They’re building because the government space programs based in Huntsville could soon have billions of new dollars to spend in a defense and telecommunications market that’s making rapid and expensive changes.

This new space story is different from the return to the moon, although NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville is actively pursuing that goal with strong commercial interest.
