Rocket Anniversary

Noah Adams talks with Mott Linn, coordinator of Archives and Special Collections at Clark University, about the 75th anniversary of the first rocket launch. Robert Goddard pioneered the way for space flight when on this day three-quarters of a century ago he launched a 10-1/2 pound rocket from his aunt's farm in Auburn, Mass.
