Did you know that Alabama is a major player in the space industry?

Huntsville, Alabama has the highest concentration of PhDs in the nation. And it's all thanks to a kidnapped Nazi scientist by the name of Werner von Braun. :)

Update:

    To be perfectly fair, the USA said, "OK, come with us, we'll give you prestige, power, and all the money you need to do your experiments. Choice number 2 is with the Russians over there. Or you can strike out on your own and see if the Jews feel forgiving..."

    That isn't QUITE the same thing as kidnapping.

    That is an interesting bit of info. However, I am very sure that the Nazi scientists who came over here were here willingly. It beat the hell out of staying in Europe and getting convicted for war crimes.

    Tom Lehrer wrote the definitive von Braun biography. One minute and 43 seconds of genius.
