Rockets!

       Rocket Science is defined as the study of rockets. A model rocket has four forces in flight. They consist of weight, thrust, lift and drag, and aerodynamic forces. There are many different types of model rockets, but we built a bottle rocket.
        We built a bottle rocket. At first we had to get a bottle and make the fins. After making the fins we had to glue them onto the bottle. After that we had to make the nose. The nose was a cone shape.
         I shot my rocket off a couple of times. It was fun and a new learning experience.
