Humanity has always looked to the stars. Throughout time, people have dreamed of traveling to the far distant points of light in our night sky. It is only in the latter half of the twentieth century, however, that humans have actually left the Earth and set foot on the Moon or sent robotic spacecraft throughout the solar system.

The vehicle that has made such travel possible is the rocket. Today's rockets are remarkable collections of human ingenuity that have their roots in the science and technology of the past. They are natural outgrowths of literally thousands of years of experimentation and research on rockets and rocket propulsion.
