Basics of How rockets work

By admin | Science Topics

Have you seen what happens if you let the air out of a balloon?

The air goes one way and the balloon moves in the opposite direction, that is why a balloon can be used to propel things, like the Lego car shown in the picture below.

Rockets work just like that! Exhaust gases come out of the engine nozzle at high speed and push the rocket forward.
