“This week in 1969, city officials carry Wernher von Braun, the first center director of NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center, on their shoulders during a celebration in downtown Huntsville following the completion of Apollo 11 -- the first crewed lunar landing. Marshall worked with companies across America to build the Saturn V launch vehicle that sent astronauts to the moon.
