History1.gifRocket Blast: Rocket History

Do you remember studying Lewis and Clark as well as other explorers in history? In the future we will have the same type explorers except instead of exploring America or Europe, they will be exploring the Moon or Mars. This would require people to actually stay for long periods of time. The Moon is a little larger than a quarter the size of Earth. Mars is about half the size of Earth. That would be a lot of exploring. It is hard to believe that today's space rockets can be connected to inventions more than 2,000 years ago.
