Jet meets WV Rocket Boy, Homer Hickam.

At this year's annual Rocket Boys Festival, a special PBS KIDS guest landed in Beckely to check out the activity.  The Youth Museum of Southern West Virginia sponsored Jet's excursion.  While in Beckely watched rockets being built and greeted some of his fans.  Jet got a special treat as he also met West Virginia's own Rocket Boy, Home Hickam.

Check out Jet on READY JET GO! weekdays at 7:30 a. and 4p. on WVPB.  Travel with Jet and his friends as they explore the universe.
