Product Description: Let's Get America Back to Space—the Rocket City Redneck Way! Meet Dr. Travis S. Taylor, chief redneck on the hit national television show, Rocket City Rednecks. Who are the Rocket City Rednecks? They're five backwoods guys from Huntsville, Alabama who also happen also to be science PhDs, engineers, and expert machinists, one of whom worked on the Saturn V program. These are rednecks with a plan—a plan to get America back into space, and Doc Travis leads the way:
"We must go back to the Moon as soon as we can to enrich our nation with the technical, economic, and emotional boost that we so desperately need right now. We must go to Mars and beyond.
"This new space plan is to do it all in logical and calculated steps, but with enthusiasm and vigor and the drive of a moral imperative. Our moral imperative is to make and keep America strong, safe, and bountiful and to protect humanity's future.
"The approach is to be smart about our plan and not throw away a legacy we've been building for decades. It is humanity's destiny to be amongst the stars and Americans should be leading every step of the way. "This is my plan for America in space. This is a New American Space Plan. "I am Dr. Travis S. Taylor, Ringleader of the Rocket City Rednecks and I approve this message!"
