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.

If you want to get into Space, how do you go about it? Space is only 62 miles away so why is it so hard to get there? The science of the forces and energies rocket scientists deal with are clearly explained with easy-to-follow diagrams. You'll find out how a rocket gets the power to overcome gravity and Drag to get into Space. You'll learn how to steer and stay alive while you're up there and various ways to design a spacecraft so it gets you back safely. The many illustrations include innovative Spaceships such as Virgin Galactic's SpaceshipTwo. To get you started with building and flying rockets, there is a practical step-by-step guide to launching a scale model using Estes rocket motors. Tips from experienced rocketeers will get your model rocket flying high and help you get it back in one piece. The final chapter is more challenging: it's full of in-depth rocket science where you learn how to design and test a large rocket engine capable of getting you into Space!

This book translates "thinking like a rocket scientist" into every day thinking so it can be used by anyone. It’s short and snappy and written by a rocket scientist. The book illustrates the methods (the 7 secrets) with anecdotes, quotations and biographical sketches of famous scientists, personal stories and insights, and occasionally some space history. The author reveals that rocket science is just common sense applied to the extraordinarily uncommon environment of outer space and that rocket scientists are people, too. It is intended for "armchair" scientists, and for those interested in popular psychology, space history, and science fiction films.
