If you are looking for a good burger in a great atmosphere, look no further – Supper Heroes is the place to go!
Supper Heroes is located in a mild mannered building next to a Dominos Pizza on Winchester Road. The signage is a shield-shaped insignia emblazoned with the initials “SH.” Inside, the restaurant is a comic book-themed spot with creative takes on American cuisine.
The overhead lights fixtures have been painted with symbols from super hero characters such as Spider-Man, The Flash, Green Lantern and The Punisher, and framed issues of “Daredevil,” “The Fantastic Four” and “Moon Knight” adorn the walls. Action figures representing the likes of Hell Boy gesticulate from an alcove. Figurines depicting Thor, the Green Goblin, etc. are encased in a clear plastic shelf.
The variety of sandwiches with catchy, and playfully witty names are sure to fit the bill for almost any taste, and if you have a love for all things comic-esque, you will be sure to want to come back for more. Check them out if you are here visiting for the first-time, or even if you are local – you will not regret it!
Space and Rocket Center
The U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama is a museum operated by the government of Alabama, showcasing rockets, achievements, and artifacts of the U.S. space program. Sometimes billed as “Earth’s largest space museum”, astronaut Owen Garriott described the place as, “a great way to learn about space in a town that has embraced the space program from the very beginning.”
Opened in 1970, just after the second manned mission to the lunar surface, the center not only showcases Apollo Program hardware but also houses interactive science exhibits, Space Shuttle and Army rocketry and aircraft. With more than 1,500 permanent rocketry and space exploration artifacts, as well as many rotating rocketry and space-related exhibits, the center occupies land carved out of Redstone Arsenal adjacent to Huntsville Botanical Garden at exit 15 on Interstate 565. The center offers bus tours of nearby Marshall Space Flight Center.
The U.S. Space & Rocket Center has one of the most extensive collections of space artifacts and displays more than 1500 pieces. Displays include rockets, engines, spacecraft, simulators, and hands-on exhibits. The rocketry collection includes numerous engines, as well. In addition to the authentic engines mounted on rockets on display, the museum has unmounted engines on display, including two F-1s, the type of gigantic engine that pushed Saturn Vs off the launch pad, the J-2 engine that powered second and third stages of the Saturn V, and both Descent and Ascent Propulsion System (DPS/APS) engines for the Lunar Module.
This is one of the most spectacular museums you can visit when in Alabama. If you have a little free-time, this is worth the visit!
