On a snowy day in 1926, a physicist named Robert Goddard set out to his Aunt Effie's ranch. What happened next was not your typical day on the farm – Goddard launched the first liquid-propellant rocket.
In this episode of Here's an Idea™, we explore how Dr. Goddard's efforts, almost 100 years ago, have inspired generations of rocketeers and spaceflight launches.
We speak with engineering student Josh Allen; Orbital ATK’s Mark Ogren; NASA’s Rob Garner; and Estes model-rocket director Michael Fritz.
