How to build real rockets
You will need three things and two tools:
- You need matchsticks (about three packages)
- You need cat litter (a handful of )
- You need an old ballpen made of aluminium or hard plastic
First step is to fill some catlitter into your empty ballpen and compress it very hard!
The catlitter is used to form your rocket's nozzle.
The second step:
Take the matchsticks' heads and grind them to a fine powder.
Insert this powder carefully into the rocket:
Compress this powder, too. But be very gentle - i will ignite under too much pressure!!!
Now you have to close your rocket with catlitter:
To finish this rocketengine you have to drill a hole from the botten to about the halft of the matchstickpowder.The hot gases will escape throuh this hole and create thrust:
Now your rocket is ready to be fired! Attach some wings and put a rocket igniter into the hole:
READY FOR LIFTOFF!
