This book teaches the reader to build rockets--powered by compressed air, water, and solid propellant--with the maximum possible fun, safety, and educational experience. Make: Rockets is for all the science geeks who look at the moon and try to figure out where Neil Armstrong walked, watch in awe as rockets lift off, and want to fly their own model rockets. Starting with the basics of rocket propulsion, readers will start out making rockets made from stuff lying around the house, and then move on up to air-, water-, and solid propellant-powered rockets. Most of the rockets in the book can be built from parts in the Estes Designer Special kit.

Most amateur astronomers – and many of those with similar interests but who are not currently practising observers – have only a sketchy understanding of space flight. This book provides an introduction to its mechanics. The beauty of this book, written by an engineer who is also an accomplished science writer, is that it covers the subject comprehensively, and yet is almost entirely descriptive and non-mathematical. It deals with all aspects of space flight, from how to leave the Earth (including the design of the rocket, mission planning, navigation and communication), to life in space and the effects of weightlessness. The book also includes sections describing how an amateur can track satellites and understand their orbital parameters.

An overall view of the vast spectrum of knowledge needed by practicing rocket scientists and engineers, Introduction to Rocket Science and Engineering presents the history and basics of rocket theory, design, experimentation, testing, and applications. It covers an array of fields, from advanced mathematics, chemistry, and physics to logistics, systems engineering, and politics. The text begins with a discussion on the discovery and development of rockets as well as the basic principles governing rockets and rocket science. It explains why rockets are needed from economic, philosophical, and strategic standpoints and looks at why the physics of the universe forces us to use rockets to complete certain activities. Exploring how rockets work, the author covers the concepts of thrust, momentum, impulse, and the rocket equation, along with the rocket engine, its components, and the physics involved in the generation of the propulsive force. He also presents several different types of rocket engines and discusses the testing of rocket components, subsystems, systems, and complete products. The final chapter stresses the importance of rocket scientists and engineers to think of the unusual, unlikely, and unthinkable when dealing with the complexities of rocketry. Taking students through the process of becoming a rocket scientist or engineer, this text supplies a hands-on understanding of the many facets of rocketry. It provides the ideal foundation for students to continue on their journey in rocket science and engineering.

A New York Times bestseller A Los Angeles Times bestseller An Amazon Best Book of 2016 An Entertainment Weekly "10 Books You Have to Read in April" An Elle "8 Books by Women for Bill Gates to Read This Summer" 2016 Goodreads Choice Awards finalist The riveting true story of the women who launched America into space. In the 1940s and 50s, when the newly minted Jet Propulsion Laboratory needed quick-thinking mathematicians to calculate velocities and plot trajectories, they didn't turn to male graduates. Rather, they recruited an elite group of young women who, with only pencil, paper, and mathematical prowess, transformed rocket design, helped bring about the first American satellites, and made the exploration of the solar system possible. For the first time, Rise of the Rocket Girls tells the stories of these women--known as "human computers"--who broke the boundaries of both gender and science. Based on extensive research and interviews with all the living members of the team, Rise of the Rocket Girls offers a unique perspective on the role of women in science: both where we've been, and the far reaches of space to which we're heading.

What's important when building a rocket from scratch? How about high performance, ease of construction and safety. Let's face it; nobody wants to lose a limb. With over fifteen years experience building rockets, Dan Pollino's latest manual makes this seemingly daunting project simple. You'll learn such fundamental tasks as: Making the rocket body from a drain pipe Making the nosecone from a plastic wine glass Making a piston that ejects the parachute without scorching it Making an electromechanical apogee detector Making the nozzle with cement and a steel washer Making the fuel from ordinary sugar You can do it! With this book anyone can construct a high-quality rocket capable of reaching four hundred miles-per-hour and attaining an altitude of six thousand feet without a machine shop, or even special tools. Free bonus chapters including making the launch rail, making the ignition controller and launching the rocket multiple times are available online. In this easy-to-understand guide you'll find step-by-step instructions to building the perfect rocket without injuring yourself or your wallet. I Still Have All My Fingers is the rocket building bible amateur rocket enthusiasts have been waiting for. Dan Pollino's rockets have been featured on G4 TV's "It's Effin Science." His website InverseEngineering.com focuses on amateur rocketry in California.
