Goddard was the first to develop technologies -- liquid fuel and two-stage rockets, for instance -- that would be necessary for space travel. However, these technologies would have been developed by others even if Goddard hadn't done so. German scientists, for example, developed these with no knowledge of what Goddard had done.
