Bottle 9 (Water Rocket)

Team missions

-Make the rocket fly

-Don’t destroy it at every crash

-Take some cool photos

-Acquire atmospheric datas

Why do you want to do this project?

We were interested in rocket engineering and a water rocket is the more safe and  sustainable way to make one.

Why can it be of interest to someone else too?

It could be of interest to all those passionate about space engineering as it could be a simple and efficient project.
