  • Rocket Propulsion

    provide the thrust that is needed for a plane to take off and fly through the air. Most spacecraft today are propelled by forcing a gas from the back/rear of the vehicle at very high speed through a supersonic nozzle. This sort of engine is called a rocket engine. Liquid fuel propulsion systems use a fuel‚ such as liquid hydrogen‚ kerosene or alcohol and liquids such as oxygen liquids. The oxygen liquids provides the oxygen necessary to ignite and burn the fuel‚ which in turn enables a spacecraft’s
