On this day in 1926, the first man to give hope to dreams of space travel is American Robert H. Goddard, who successfully launches the worlds first liquid-fueled rocket at Auburn, Massachusetts. The rocket traveled for 2.5 seconds at a speed of about 60mph, reaching an altitude of 41 feet and landing 184 feet away. The rocket was 10 feet tall, constructed out of thin pipes, and was fueled by liquid oxygen and gasoline.
Death is more universal than life. For although everyone dies, not everyone truly lives.
