How Does a Rocket Work?

How Does a Rocket Work?
The limits of mankind’s travel were obliterated with the invention of the rocket; we left our atmosphere and forged onward into the great beyond. This exciting technology is richly explored here, teaching students about how rockets break away from earth’s powerful gravitational pull. They’ll read about reentry into Earth’s atmosphere and how safe landings are accomplished.

Series Review: How Does It Work?
"The 13 two-page chapters in each book are attractively designed. The first spread shows the featured vehicle on a bright yellow background. Numerous parts of the cutaway illustrations are labeled with one-sentence explanations of the indicated part’s function. The rest of each title is nicely arranged with black font on a bright blue background. Photos and captions, diagrams, “Fun Facts,” “That’s Amazing!” boxes, and one experiment add a considerable amount of information to the text."
