Alabama now home to United States Space Command headquarters

SHARE NOW

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – Alabama’s Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville will be the United States Space Command permanent headquarters.

Huntsville has been the longtime home of the Army’s Redstone Arsenal and NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center.

Space Command is different from the Space Force. Space Command will conduct operations such as enabling satellite-based navigation and troop communication. That is different from the Space Force, which is a distinct military service.

“I applaud the decision by the Air Force to select Redstone Arsenal as the new home of the U.S. Space Command,” said said Congressman Mike Rogers. Rogers represents Alabama’s 3rd district in Washington. He is also a ranking member of the House Armed Services Committee. “Alabama has long been home to our nation’s premiere defense and civilian space assets.  This decision by the Air Force makes sense given all the equities in Alabama.  Defending our country against threats from our enemies takes a national effort.  I am proud of the role Alabama plays in this overall effort.”
