    Good grief! Can you believe this 600-pound pumpkin that one of our archaeologists grew? Whether you''re trick-or-treating, watching a spooky movie or waiting for the Great Pumpkin, we hope you have a safe and happy Halloween!

    In June 1961 Wheeler Lock, located in north Ala., failed, halting the shipment of all cargo to and from the upstream section of the Tennessee River. At the time of the lock failure, NASA had plans to ship the Saturn rocket booster, built at Huntsvilles Redstone Arsenal, by barge to Cape Canaveral, Fla., for its first test firing. Keeping the Saturn rocket test on schedule was crucial to support the planned Apollo program to send astronauts to orbit the moon. An urgent response was needed to construct barge docks allowing the 75-ton Saturn rocket to be offloaded above the dam and reloaded below the dam. TVA rose to the occasion as engineers and construction forces responded to the challenge and met the shipment date of August 1961. #TBT
