When Pat Artis was a youngster, he built and launched a rocket, promptly blowing a hole in the family's truck window. His unlikely cohort in the crime - his father - shielded him by telling Pat's mother that a rock hit the vehicle. The teenager continued tinkering with rockets and eventually won a research and development award from the National Association of Rocketry.
