Rocket Man

A new monument to honor Robert Goddard, the first in his native Worcester, was unveiled on a rainy afternoon in May. The monument comprises eight panels that, through text and photos, tell the story of Goddard’s life and accomplishments. Goddard, known as the “father of modern rocketry,” graduated from WPI in 1908. WPI contributed to the monument’s development and donated an informational kiosk to the project.
