Blue Origin picks Alabama as sweet home for rocket production site
Lift off....rocket firms are capturing headlines these days

What with Elon Musk and Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) founder Jeff Bezos, rockets are where it's at it seems.

Blue Origin,  a rocket company owned by Bezos, is coming to Huntsville, Alabama.

There it will reportedly build a 200,000 sq ft facility for manufacturing the engines, bringing with it $200mln investment and 342 new jobs,

The construction is however still dependent on ULA awarding the final contract.

Blue Origin had also been considering Florida, well known for space travel, for the possible site for BE-4 engine manufacturing.

But Huntsville is home to NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center, responsible for development of the agency's massive Space Launch System rocket, and the US Army's Aviation and Missile Command, or AMCOM.
