This book was super informative about rockets, and how you have to keep trying to make something work. I wish there had been a second book. I had a very fun time reading this and highly recommend it!

On March 16, 1926, history was made, for this was the day that Dr. Robert Goddard successfully tested the world’s first liquid-fuel rocket. Now Dr. Goddard is well known as the father of the space age; his work paved the way for all space exploration that came after. But before this remarkable achievement, he was just a boy with an impossible dream. Young Bob was raised by loving parents who supported his many interests, but he was not taken seriously by the scientific community or the newspapers that mocked his wild ideas. However, Bob refused to give up because he knew he was on the verge of an important discovery, one that would allow humankind to venture out into the vast universe beyond our earth.
