new technology

The concept of the space rocket has been around for centuries, ever since Chinese warriors experimented with “fire arrows” hundreds of years ago.

Physicist Robert Goddard spent two years, from 1912 to 1914, working on the idea of a rocket designed with separate stages, a separate combustion chamber, and with greatly increased exhaust speed.
