"Rocket Base Kid"

James Nathan Post was raised near White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico, son of a rocket radio research engineer and an artist. This picture was taken in June 1957 by model rocket inventor G.Harry Stine, using one of his first garage-made prototypes for this advertising shot, making James the first kid to shoot one of these now-popular model rockets.
