KIRKUS REVIEW

Basic laws underlying rocket research today are explained in the chapters here and in the experiments young people, who know something about physics and have access to workshop equipment, will be able to do. Speed, design, friction, momentum, gravity, temperature control and power are some of the topics discussed and the experiments range from simple steam Jets that can be made from coffee cans and hot water, and streamlined paper gliders, on to the more complicated building of a simple motor. Far from being the bulk of the book, the experiments have been integrated into the text to form part of and to enlarge on the relayed information.
