Space City!

Among other things, Houston is known as "Space City" due to the location of the Johnson Space Center here. The first words spoken by the astronauts from the moon in 1969 were "Houston, the eagle has landed."

Houston is also known as the energy capital of the world, and many of the world's leading energy companies have headquarters or refineries here.
