Rocket Launch

How can we launch our rocket?

Following our unplanned landing on Mars, the Y5 Space Tourists have been challenged to find the best way of launching their rocket. They have had to consider the following variables for their rocket prototype:

  • Size of bottle launcher
  • Capacity of liquid fuel (white vinegar)
  • Mass of booster crystals (bicarbonate of soda)

Watch our video below to see if we had a successful launch!


Fingers crossed Y5!

We explained the forces that were acting upon our rocket as it shot up into the air!
