Aerospace is about flying in Earth’s atmosphere and its surrounding outer space. The word is a combination of aeronautics or aviation and space. The science and technology of flying in Earth’s atmosphere is called aeronautics while flying in outer space is called astronautics.
How do things fly? How do rockets work? What makes a hot air balloon go up into the air?
