Robert H. Goddard, the father of modern rocketry, once asserted that rocket technology would make it possible to get to the moon. This claim was mocked and scoffed at by the public until Goddard launched the world's first liquid fueled rocket on March 16, 1926 and continued his rocket research until his death in 1945.
