Marshall Space Flight Center

; Economy Huntsville's main economic influence is derived from aerospace and military technology. Redstone Arsenal, Cummings Research Park (CRP), and NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center comprise the main hubs for the area's technology-driven economy. CRP is the second largest research park in the United States and the fourth largest in the world, and is over 38 years old. University of Alabama in Huntsville is a center for technology and engineering research in the area. There are commercial technology companies such as the network access company ADTRAN, computer graphics company Intergraph and design and manufacturer of IT infrastructure Avocent. Telecommunications provider Deltacom, Inc. is based in the city. Cinram manufactures and distributes 20th Century Fox DVDs and Blu-ray Discs out of their Huntsville plant. Sanmina-SCI has a presence in the area. Fifty-seven Fortune 500 companies have operations in Huntsville. When the problem reoccurred, NASA ran a fuel test, which led them to believe the problem lied in the faulty connector. The connector was then removed from the tank and taken to Marshall Space Flight Center (w:Marshall Space Flight Center) in Huntsville (w:Huntsville, Alabama), Alabama, where it is currently undergoing extensive analysis and modification. The new connector is scheduled to be installed by January 10. At the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center (w:Marshall Space Flight Center) activities will focus on their slogan for Earth Day 2009, "Just One Drop ... PRICELESS" and will demonstrate how the Environmental Control Life Support System (w:Life support system) operates as used on the International Space Staton (w:International Space Station) (ISS).

Like most UHF start-ups during this time, WYEA began with several handicaps.

Columbia, Missouri

"Tammy Grimes biography" , allmusic.com, accessed January 9, 2009 thumb (Image:Mizzou Arena interior.jpg) '''Mizzou Arena''' is an indoor arena (list of indoor arenas) on the campus of the University of Missouri in Columbia, Missouri, USA. The facility, home to the school's men's and women's basketball teams, opened in November 2004 and replaced the Hearnes Center as the school's main indoor sports facility. The arched-roof building seats 15,061, and is located just south of Hearnes and Memorial Stadium (Faurot Field). The arena is host to Missouri State High School Activities Association championships for basketball and wrestling. She and her husband Bill, major contributors to the University of Missouri in Columbia, Missouri despite neither having attended the school, were caught up in a scandal surrounding the naming of the school's new basketball arena in 2004. They had made a $25 million naming rights gift that went to the funding of the $75 million arena, and named the facility Paige Sports Arena after their sports holding company, Paige Sports Entertainment. The company was named after their daughter, Elizabeth Paige Laurie, who also did not attend the university. Bill's brother Barry was a former Missouri basketball player, and Barry's son, Spencer Laurie, was a player on the team at the time. Nancy's nephew, Josh Kroenke, was also a former Missouri basketball player. After their daughter Paige graduated from University of Southern California in 2004, a former roommate charged that she had been paid $20,000 over four years to do Paige's homework for her. Once the charges were aired on the ABC (American Broadcasting Company) news program ''20 20 (20 20 (US television series))'', the elder Lauries relinquished naming rights of the facility, which is now known as Mizzou Arena. In June 2005, the college roommate appeared on the Ion Television show ''Lie Detector (Lie Detector (TV series)‎)''.
