Summary In Rockets we explore the 2,000 years that rockets have been in existence. We dive into Newton's Laws of Motion--learning all about gravity, force, acceleration, and the history of rockets made in the past and rockets to be made in the future!-- Source other than Library of Congress,
"How do you create a controlled explosion and harness that power for the benefit of humankind? Meet the visionary physicists, chemists, engineers, and entertainers (as well as mice, bears, tortoises, and more) who took rockets from illuminations in the sky to the most powerful vehicles ever known. You'll also find out how using a gyroscope, swinging on a swing set, and spraying water from a garden hose are the keys to understanding space travel"-- Page [4] of cover.
