The Science Of Rocket Science

The Science Of Rocket Science

Newton’s Third Law Of Motion, which states that every action has an equal and opposite reaction is the heart of rocket science.

The basics of rocket science are not that complicated, only involving getting the moving force that overcomes the pull of gravity, in a calculated and controlled manner.

The thrust required for an object to overcome Earth’s gravity and atmospheric resistance and move towards space is called escape velocity. Besides Earth, the gravitational forces that can affect the object are those coming from the sun, moon and even other planets.

Many rockets have multiple ‘shell’s that fall off during escape velocity and is due to the empty fuel containers that are discarded to save on mass, after their fuel has been utilized.
