10 Rare Photos Taken During The Stennis Space Center Construction In Mississippi That Will Simply Astound You
Part of NASA’s John C. Stennis Space Center, the INFINITY Science Center has long been a popular destination for field trips and family outings. Though a well known attraction, not many of us put much thought into the site’s past. Prior to becoming “America’s largest rocket engine test complex,” the area included several towns. However, all that changed in October 1961, when the federal government announced it had chosen the area to be the site of a new test facility. The announcement led to years of hard work and the renowned facility we have today; here are 10 photos that show exactly what went into constructing Stennis Space Center.
