"Rocketing to the Moon" - is it possible?
Modern Mechanix features a January, 1930 article from Modern Mechanics in which Dr. Robert Hutchings Goddard explains why he thinks it is possible. The article states: "To answer that question in the affirmative is to bring smiles to the faces of skeptics without number." In 2010, according to Wikipedia, that number is still 6 to 28 percent of the population. That blows my mind, man.
