<p>The Goddard Space Flight Center was established on May 1, 1959, to honor Dr. Robert H. Goddard, known as the father of modern rocket propulsion. The Greenbelt campus is the hub for scientists, engineers and technicians building instruments and tools for space study and travel. In addition to the offices and labs, there is a visitors' center that is free to the public, filled with informative and interactive exhibits on climate change and even a Gemini capsule model. Check out the gift shop after your visit for space-related educational materials and postcards.</p>
