Science Rewind - The Science of Rockets with Dr Dan Nickstrom

About this event

People often say it's not rocket science but in this case, it is ! Explore the science and physics of rockets with Dr Dan Nickstrom, who presents the Midlands Science show Science at Home. Rocket science is all about using rocket propulsion to move anything from a firework to a manned spaceship.

At the heart of rocketry is Isaac Newton’s Third Law of Motion, something that’s been established for over 300 years. It says that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. If you stand in front of a wall and push it hard, you will move backwards. There are three basic requirements to a working rocket: get it moving, overcome the pull of gravity and plot a course. Tune in and learn about all it !
