Discover how rockets work and find out about the forces involved in getting rockets into space and be involved in modelling these forces. Examine the effect of space travel on the body and learn what it is like to live in micro-gravity conditions.
This 30 minute Science Show explains the main principle of rocket propulsion using many demonstrations and the famous Newtonian law of 'equal and opposite reactions'. The show also follows the history of rocketry from the first Chinese rocket to the first satellite and how astronauts train and live in a weightless environment.
