Dr. Robert H. Goddard launched his historic rocket 'Nell' on March 16, 1926, from what was then the Asa Ward Farm (Aunt Effie's farm) in Auburn, Massachusetts. Its 10-foot (3.0 m) cylinder reached an altitude of 41 feet (12 m), flew for two-and-a-half seconds, and fell to the ground 184 feet (56 m) from the launching frame.

An electric-blue aurora that is eerily glowing on the giant planet Jupiter. Though the aurora resembles the same phenomenon that crowns Earth's polar regions, the Hubble image shows unique emissions from the magnetic ''footprints'' of three of Jupiter's largest moons. Auroral footprints can be seen in this image from Io (along the left hand limb), Ganymede (near the center), and Europa (just below and to the right of Ganymede's auroral footprint). This ultraviolet image of Jupiter was taken...

The Phonebook Page: Find Contact Information The People Search works just like the People Search on the previous internal page, but provides additional contact information like a person's building and room number. Type in a name of a Goddard employee, civil servant or contractor, click Go and his or her listing will open. Only have the extension of a Goddard employee and no name? Do you know where a person works, but not his/her name? Find it using the advanced search feature of the phonebook....
