Google the origin of the word "rocket." I'm sure the word was in existence before modern day rockets were invented. It may have previously been used to refer to meteorites or burning fire balls or fireworks. The word may also have roots in Latin, Greek or the romance languages.
you sure this guy isn't a time traveler ? or was he the inventor of the word rocket
