The First Rocket In The World

Very few people know that the first rocket propulsion was invented in Romania. In Sibiu city, in 1529,Conrad Haas completed the draft of a space rocket with three solid fuel compartments. This rocket was launched in 1555. This amazing discovery belongs to Todericiu Doru, a Romanian teacher from the College of Science and Engineering, University of Bucharest. After studying several medieval manuscripts, he found a scroll  describing with amazing accuracy a modern rocket. In 1967, professor Todericiu explain his discovery in " Romanian Journal oh History". The discovery has been halted at first, after which silence prevailed and almost no one talks about it today.
