Robert Goddard
Rocket Research Site


In the early 1930s, Doctor Robert Goddard chose Roswell as his home, while he developed the world’s first liquid fueled rockets.

Mishaps from his rocket tests in Massachusetts (include an infamous launch and subsequent crash that set a blaze, and had neighbors complain to the fire marshal), forced Goddard to find a better testing ground where his rockets could fly.
