Descriptions of my rockets so far.

Construction:

Contains information on how to construct water rockets

Physics:

Here i will try to explain some of the theoretical background behind water rockets. There are a lot of interesting effects that takes place during the flight of a water rocket, and if you give some of them a thought, you can avoid many gray hairs.

Design:

Knowing about the physics and the techniques used in construction, it is time to put them together. Good performance, easy construction, good looks and affordability is what makes a water rocket - and do not forget the FUN! Enjoyment is central in water rocketry.

Links:

Water rockets are made and flown throughout the world and the web is the place to go if you want to know more. There is well-establiced communities, informative websites, and don't forget to check out YouTube for videos.
