Discover the science behind rocket propulsion and navigation!

What is the connection between Hero’s engine, billiards game and rockets? Which are the fundamental physics laws that underlie rocket launch and propulsion? What kind of fuel do rockets use and how does it give them enough power to get into space? How did we get from gunpowder to hydrogen-based fuels? How do rockets and space telescopes navigate through space and what does this have to do with spinning tops? 

Watch our staff scientists demonstrate science in action!

Immerse yourself in the wonders of rocket science. Explore the physics behind rocket launch, propulsion and stability. Observe the differences between solid, liquid and gaseous fluids. Learn how space telescopes and satellites navigate through space in order to observe different astronomical objects.
