HUNTSVILLE — There was a whole lot of shaking going on Saturday morning as the Marshall Space Flight Center’s original administrative headquarters known as Building 4200 was imploded in a controlled demolition.
The building served as NASA headquarters from 1963 until 2020.
From Town Madison to Lowe Mill to the city’s Five Points, Huntsville and Madison residents report hearing the crash as the aging structure considered too cost prohibitive to renovate was reduced to rubble.
“Buildings come down,” said Scott Worley, Marshall’s historical preservation officer, “but rockets keep going up. Our work lies beyond the sky.”
