We wrap up Genius Week today with this picture of Robert Goddard. He, as much as anyone else, could be described as the Father of the American Space Program. This picture was taken in 1931 near Roswell New Mexico. He is transporting one of his early rocket prototypes to the launch pad behind his Ford Model A truck. I love pictures like this that show different eras . . . you would never expect to see such an early model car pulling a rocket. Goddard died in the 40's before the US space program really ramped up, so it was not until after his death that people really realized his genius.
