Almost a century ago, Robert Goddard was working on developing rockets that could ascend to the upper atmosphere and, much more important, reach such destinations as the Moon and Mars. After The New York Times carried a news story about his work, the paper ran an editorial (January 13, 1920) ridiculing the idea. It stated in part:
The Times ran what it titled "A Correction" on July 17, 1969. The day before, Apollo 11 had been launched toward the Moon, using Goddard's method (he was the first to build a liquid-fueled rocket, the technology still used today). In its correction, the Times summarized its 1920 editorial, then stated:
These quotations, and more information about skepticism about Goddard's work, can be found in his Wikipedia bio.
I didn't even know he was I'll.
