Video: Build A Rocket! from Rocket Boys the Musical

Keith's note: Video: Build A Rocket!from Rocket Boys the Musical

Keith's note: On the day that the SLS ageeement was announced, I thought this was an appropriate video to show - courtesy of the original Rocket Boy himself, Homer Hickam. This scene is from "Rocket Boys the Musical" based on Homer Hickam's memoir Rocket Boys, the #1 New York Times bestseller which was also made into the movie "October Sky". It is the scene where the rocket boys realize what they need to do to open up a grand new future. The clip is from Theatre West Virginia's presentation of the show earlier this month. "Rocket Boys the Musical" is being developed for the Broadway stage. For more information, please go to
