Huntsville, Alabama: Marshall Rockets and Space Center

Marshall Rockets and Space Center--NASA's developmentel center for rockets and propulsion technologies-- is a worthy visit if its on your way during a trip across Alabama. It's a great place to learn a bit about human's journey into space, and its "G-Force Accelerator" (the big centrifuge they put astronauts in to simulate rocket's acceleration) is one of its kind. It makes me appreciate that earth's gravity is "only" 9.8 m/s^2! :)
