Model Space Launch System paint project to bridge Huntsville's past and present

But Huntsville today is going back to the moon and on to Mars in the Space Launch System," said Deborah Barnhart, USSRC C.E.O.

Vallely said this Rockets on Parade project is a way to continue the past-to-present theme of the 50th anniversary of the moon landing.

"Next year with the 50th anniversary of Apollo, I think people are going to flock to Huntsville to see where this genius rocket was born," Barnhart said.

And she wants the rest of Huntsville to get in on the action by calling the Rocket Center, or clicking this link to get a model SLS of their own.

Barnhart hopes to see more than 100 of the painted model SLS's in the community by July, when the anniversary celebration begins.

The USSRC website says , "The rockets will be judged based on impact, creativity, subject matter, and historical storytelling and be on display throughout the Apollo 11 50th Anniversary Celebration.
