Alabama 4-H



Rocketry is about the science and technology of rocket design, construction, and flight. A rocket is typically a vehicle that obtains thrust or power from a rocket engine. Rocket engines use various types of fuel that when burned in the rocket engine provides propulsion. Propulsion is based on Newton’s Third Law of physics which states that for every reaction there is an equal and opposite reaction.
