A new children's book from NIH discusses the "trials and triumphs of NIH's youngest researchers," according to a press release. The name of the book, The Rocket Boys of NIH: How NIH Gives Health and Hope to Kids and the World, comes from a grant request the NIH received 52 years ago from 9-year-old Terence Boylan who wanted $10 to build a rocket ship with 14-year old Bruce Cook -- Boylan and Cook received their money. "Can you imagine what a thrill it was," Boylan says in a statement. "It made me think I could do anything." The book is aimed at fourth or fifth graders and can be requested in English or Spanish from CSR.
