Note: Blogging will be a bit light this week because I’m on travel. If time permits, I’ll provide some details.
The Washington Post featured AetherCzar’s hometown – Huntsville, AL – in their travel section last week. The U.S. Space and Rocket Center, home of “Space Camp,” has tended to eclipse Huntsville’s other attractions. The Washington Post article spotlights the Huntsville Botanical Garden as well as Huntsville’s open-air historical museum: Burritt on the Mountain.
Huntsville has also become a hot spot for technology start-ups. CNN/Money and Kiplinger have both ranked Huntsville as a top center for technical entrepreneurship. Sometimes known as “Rocket City,” Huntsville is home to NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center and the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command. These installations have helped create a critical mass of talented engineering, scientific, and technical professionals who have developed technology start-ups in areas beyond space and defense applications.
