HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - It's time to rehabilitate and preserve the U.S. Space and Rocket Center's collection of historic rockets, which symbolize our space program and why Huntsville is the Rocket City.
The center needs your help to complete the massive project.
The Space and Rocket Center also hopes to restore the Saturn 5 replica in time for the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Lunar Landing in July of 2019.
Work to begin taking these rockets down for restoration began Monday morning starting with the Mercury Redstone.
CEO Deborah Barnhart tells us that you'll actually be able to see the restoration process in action.
