Explore rocket science from ancient Chinese weaponry to NASA’s race to get a man on the moon. Learn about one of the greatest engineering efforts in human history: NASA’s Project Apollo and the space race to put a man on the moon. Apollo 11 landed on the moon in 1969, just eleven years after the first successful satellite launch (Sputnik in 1957) and forty-three years after Robert Goddard’s launch of the world’s first liquid fueled rocket. But the history of rocket development actually can be traced back more than 2,000 years to the experiments of Archytas, an ancient Greek Philosopher.
