Ever heard the expression ?reach for the stars'? Back in 1934, that's just what German rocket engineer Gerhard Zucker did with his radical new idea for delivering letters at high speed over long distances - ROCKETS! Next stop: the Western Isles, and the scene of a dramatic experiment to send two rockets full of letters on a 1600 metre flight path between the isles of Harris and Scarp. On the 28th and the 31st July Gerhard launches his rockets. On both occasions the rockets go up in flames. His vision for the future of communication explodes into thousands of tiny pieces that fall through the sky like rain. Back to the drawing board for Gerhard. But maybe, one day, his vision will be realised.
