The true story of Homer Hickam, a coal miner's son who was inspired by the first Sputnik launch to take up rocketry against his father's wishes.
Boys be ambitious! This is it! What he was lucky was that he had all the good people around him. He had a very good teacher who trusts his potential and friends who also worked together no matter what. He also had big help from his father’s place even the father didn't approve him what he does.
Just where he lives and what his father does were his faith he couldn't space because there was no choice. But because of all the people, he could do what he wanted and he was very talented at it.
A good movie to watch and I want children to watch this.
