The History of NASA and JPL

NASA did not begin until 1958. But the Rocket Boys of Pasadena and Caltech were experimenting

with Rockets as early as 1937. Jet Propulsion Laboratory was born out of those tumultuous but

exciting times. The beginning of NASA was brought about by very smart, passionate and persistent

people. After WWII, the race to the moon was on.
