Rocket City Rednecks

Huntsville, Alabama, is also called “Rocket City” and is home to the “Rocket City Rednecks” – a group of real-life redneck geniuses who apply backwoods know-how to big questions in science, technology and engineering. Travis Taylor, the ringleader of the “Rocket City Rednecks”, has a PhD in engineering and Top Secret clearance with the U. S. government. Besides being typical Deep South, Huntsville is also the home of the U. S. Space and Rocket Center, where NASA began in the 1950s. When NASA, the Department of Defense, or private industry needs someone to solve a big scientific problem, Travis is their man. Joining him is a group of backwater Einsteins like Rog, a guy with a genius IQ of 160; Pete, an optical scientist who designs satellites at the U. S. Space and Rocket Center; and Travis’ dad Charles, one of NASA’s original engineers.
