Rocket Science 101

Rocket Science 101

Welcome to Rocket Science 10! This is where you can learn all about four rockets and how they are assembled. You will need a Flash player to view this site, which you can get here for free. You may have noticed the low bandwidth link at the bottom of the page. This will take you to a text only version of the site, but it isn’t very interesting. To me, it reads like a definition list.

From the drop down menu, select one of the four rockets: Delta II, Delta IV, Atlas V or Pegasus. This will load that rocket’s page, where you will then be asked if this is your first time and if you’d like to see some instructions. I’d select Yes, but it’s up to you. It will then give you an instruction window. Choose Next to continue reading the instructions and then close it when you are finished.

If you skip the instructions, what you need to know is that you highlight the part of the rocket you want to work on from the list and then you can drag it down from the right side pane to the bottom pane.

Follow each step and you will learn all about how these rockets are made and also how they work. Each part is fully explained when you drag and drop them into place.

I really enjoyed seeing how everything fits together. This would be a great site for kids who are interested in this kind of science, because you learn while you put it together.

Since there are four rockets to choose from, you can even learn how they differ from each other. I thought that was pretty cool too. I tried the Pegasus rocket right off the bat, but I’m really interested in building the others now, so I’m off to build more rockets. Care to join me?!…Science101.html
