Redneck Tech


In this clip from “Moonshine Rocket Fuel,” the redneck relatives gather parts to build a homemade whiskey still to manufacture moonshine to fuel a rocket.

National Geographic is launching a new reality show filming rednecks in Alabama. What makes the show watchable? It’s set in Huntsville, birthplace of the U.S. space program and home to NASA’s Marshall Flight Center. It also features a camo-wearing family of rednecks littered with PhDs and advanced degrees in rocket science.

The show “Rocket City Rednecks,” premieres on the National Geographic Channel Wednesday night with four back-to-back episodes, including “Moonshine Rocket Fuel” and “20,000 Kegs Under the Sea.a”

"We are taking the term ‘redneck’ back! There was a time when it referred to hardworking, self-sufficient farmers whose necks would sunburn while working in the fields. Those farmers had to be smart and had to solve problems with just what they had on hand. That is what a redneck is! Now we are bringing it back in fashion, so that being called ‘redneck’ ain't an insult! It's a compliment. Nothing says you can’t have a Ph.D. and also be a redneck!"

In “20,000 Kegs Under the Sea” the boys get in a heap’a trouble test driving a submarine built out of  an emptied fertilizer tank and beer kegs.  VIDEO 2
