Publisher's Summary

Dr. Robert Goddard was the first scientist who not only realized the potential for rockets for space flight but also contributed directly in making them a reality. His rare talent in both creative science and practical engineering placed Goddard well above the European rocket pioneers. The dedicated research and experimentation into the development of rockets by the modest man went largely unrecognized in the Untied States until the dawn of the space age. Richly deserved honor now comes to the name of Robert H. Goddard and his amazing story.

All my heroes are pilots and scientists.

That was wonderful. It makes me sad how few people know what a great pioneer was Dr. Goddard. Thank you so much for this concise biography. I enjoyed it tremendously. If you would care to email me, I would be glad to share some advice for improving the sound quality of your recordings. I hope that you continue your fine work.
