“Rockets on Parade” celebrates Huntsville’s past and future with decorative SLS models

Dr. Deborah Barnhart, CEO of the U.S. Space and Rocket Center, with SLS models and a Saturn V model previously decorated.

In July 2019, Huntsville will commemorate the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11’s historic journey to the moon. We will also look to the future of space exploration by celebrating our next launch vehicle, NASA’s Space Launch System (SLS).

The U.S. Space & Rocket Center encourages you to show your pride by purchasing a SLS model, decorating it and displaying it at your place of business. Rockets on Parade is a way to demonstrate Huntsville’s ongoing contributions to the space program. Rockets cost $1,500 and are available for purchase through January 21, 2019 at rocketcenter.com/apollo50. Part of your purchase supports the U.S. Space & Rocket Center’s rocket preservation campaign.

Get your creative juices flowing to paint your rocket! Rockets will be judged on impact, creativity, subject matter and historical storytelling, and will remain on display through the Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Celebration.

If you need assistance with a design, consider commissioning a local artist. Arts Huntsville has a list – please call their office at (256) 519-2787.
