"In 1957, the Soviet satellite Sputnik crossed the sky above America. Looking up at the night sky, I thought of a falling high school student four people fascinated by its radiance - Is it okay if I can keep my ordinary high school student in this mining town as it is? Yes, we should try making a rocket! In spite of the father's opposition and ridicule from people in the town, the four people are devoted to making rockets. And with the cooperation of an eccentric but a smart classmate, they are called Rocket Boys one day and they become popular people in the town. But only the father, a man of the mines of the coal mining, will not admit it .... An autobiographical impression that the author who later became an engineer of NASA sports the youth when he grew through rocket making.
