How a rocket works

Space Featured Image 2

Hi Burnet News Club! This is exuberant_orangutan! Im here to tell you about how rockets work.

Rockets work by a rule called Newton's third law of motion. The rocket pushes the stored exhaust backwards so it goes forward .

The nose cone

The nose cone is the top of the rocket, it stores astronaughts, satellites, scientific instruments and even sometimes explosives! It also prevents aerodynamic drag and air slowing the rocket down.


Stored beneath the nose cone is the fuel. Under this is the oxidiser, running round the edge of theese is the frame (the body). How the rocket propells it self is that it uses the pumps, nozzle and the fin.

thank you for reading!
