What Bert Has To Say About Huntsville Metro Area


Huntsville is a surprising and up-and-coming research, technology and high-tech manufacturing center in extreme north Alabama. It is known as the “Space Capital of America,” a role that started in the 1940’s when a U.S. senator brought famed German scientists, including Dr. Wernher von Braun, to a local U.S. Army arsenal to continue their work.
