Asked in Astronomy
When was the first american rocket built?
1776, when "America" became a separate entity from England. Rockets were invented by the Chinese 3000 years ago, and fireworks-type rockets have been built in Europe since the early Renaissance period. The 1814 bombardment of Fort McHenry in Baltimore Harbor inspired the US National Anthem with its line about "the rocket's red glare.." The first liquid-fueled rocket was built in Massachusetts in 1926 by Robert Goddard, who is sometimes known as the "father of rocketry".

Biograghy about the person who invented the rocket?
That all depends on what you mean by "rocket." The ancient Chinese developed what we could consider to be rockets, self-propelled by gunpowder and used for entertainment and for war. The first liquid-fueled rocket, similar to what we most commonly use today, was created and built by American inventor Robert H. Goddard. He was born on October 5, 1882 in Worcester, MA, and died on August 10, 1945 in Baltimore, MA. His innovations paved the way for future experiments in rocketry, including missile design and space flight.

How did Robert Fulton contribute to the Industrial Revolution?
When was the rocket invented?
The first rockets were invented in China sometime between the 9th and 13th centuries (A.D). These were black powder rockets that were essentially what we would call fireworks today, but were technically what are known as solid fuel rockets. Significant improvements in solid fuel rockets were made by William Congreve in England in the early 19th century. The Russian Konstantine Tsiolkovsky was the first to seriously propose a liquid fueled rocket in 1903. The first successful liquid fueled rocket was built by Robert Goddard of the U.S., and patents were issued in 1914. Goddard's first successful liquid fueled rocket launch was in 1926 in Auburn, Massachusetts. They were as much a psychological weapon as a physical one, for they were rarely or never used except alongside other types of artillery. The first rocket reached space on October 3, 1942. It was the V2 rocket made by the Germans as a ballistic missile to deliver bombs during World War 2. Sputnik Rocket, the first rocket to launch a payload into orbit back in 1957, was developed by the Soviet Union in the mid 1950s. Vostok 8K72K, the first rocket used to launch a person into space back in 1961, was developed shortly after the sputnik rocket.
