The human drama of scientific work, conveying the excitement and frustration of research, as well as the exhilaration and rewards of discovery, are also depicted. This volume in the series profiles the life and career of Robert Hutchings Goddard, the American who has been called "the father of modern rocketry" and whose visionary zeal and dedication made the space age possible. The book relates the excitement of the pioneering days of Goddard's research and trials, successes and failures.
