More defense spending could help Huntsville

Feb 9, 2019

Talk of greater Pentagon investment in aerospace defense could mean good times in Huntsville. Blue Origin and Aerojet Rocketdyne plan new jobs and new facilities near NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center appear to indicate billions more dollars for defense and telecommunications. AL.com reports Washington’s possible shopping list could include things like communications satellites, possibly armed satellites, and even satellite clusters that may one day become home to the internet. President Donald Trump has also spoken of a new Space Force branch of the armed services to defend American assets in space.
