Operation[edit | edit source]
A rocket takes off with a force called action-reaction ; for example, if a cannon shoots a ball which travels 90 kilometers per hour (action), the cannon will move back 4.5 kilometers per hour (reaction). The rocket does the same but vertically.
Structure[edit | edit source]
Rockets are generally tube-shaped (except the Space Shuttle).
