What is a Rocket?
A rocket is a device that uses the force of an explosion to create thrust. Think of it like a rocket ship: The engine takes in fuel, and then burns it, which creates enough force to propel the ship forward through space.
A rocket is an engine that uses thrust to move a vehicle or payload from one point to another.
The first use of rockets was in China in the 11th century, but it was not until the 1650s that rockets became popular in Europe. This was because they were useful for launching fireworks and other pyrotechnics, which were often used as entertainment at fairs, festivals, and other events.
Rockets have been used in space exploration since the 1960s. The Space Shuttle program began in 1969—and the Space Shuttle Solid Rocket Boosters were used on all Space Shuttle missions from 1981 until 2011.
Today's rockets are much more powerful than those first used by Chinese craftsmen nearly five centuries ago.
What is a space rocket used for?
A space rocket is used to travel into outer space, from Earth's surface. It uses fuel to lift itself off the ground and then fly into outer space. The rocket has two stages, which are connected by a connecting tube.
How does a space rocket fly?
A space rocket flies by using the hydro-static forces of its fuel to push against the atmosphere.
The rocket's fuel is stored in tanks, which are filled with liquid hydrogen and oxygen. When the rocket's engines are activated, they release the fuel into the tanks, where it burns. The pressure created by the burning liquid pushes outward against the atmosphere and creates thrust.
