On this date, March 16, 1926, Dr. Robert Hutchings Goddard, professor of Physics at Worchester Polytechnic Institute in Massachusetts tried out his newest invention in his Aunt Effie's cabbage patch near Auburn, Massachusetts. Pretty old cabbages in that garden in March in Massachusetts. Dr. Goddard's invention? The world's very first liquid fueled rocket. It flew; not very high nor very far, but it flew. And attracted the attention of the town's volunteer fire department - they asked Dr. Goddard not to do any more experiments there."
