Présentation de l'éditeur

This book teaches the reader to build rockets--powered by compressed air, water, and solid propellant--with the maximum possible fun, safety, and educational experience.

Make: Rockets is for all the science geeks who look at the moon and try to figure out where Neil Armstrong walked, watch in awe as rockets lift off, and want to fly their own model rockets. Starting with the basics of rocket propulsion, readers will start out making rockets made from stuff lying around the house, and then move on up to air-, water-, and solid propellant-powered rockets. Most of the rockets in the book can be built from parts in the Estes Designer Special kit.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Captivating and Comprehensive - A Must Have for (Model) Rocket Scientists of All Ages 26 septembre 2014
Par Kevin Ryan - Publié sur Amazon.com
If you have even the slightest interest in rockets, this book will be for you. It is big and contains the gamut of information, from novice to expert, for building, launching and recovering rockets. It covers launch site setup, protocol and safety, rocket building, launch controller design and build plans and even tracking systems for when your rocket is in the air. Chapters on theory delve into the math & physics behind rocket design to ensure safe launches whether you are designing a high-flying speedster or a heavy lifter for competition or just experimenting.

The book is fun to read, it is sprinkled with humor and can be read cover to cover or treated as a reference manual where you pick and choose the chapters of interest. Skip the theory chapters if math is not your thing, and move right into building and flying.

The book covers air rockets, water rockets and solid-fuel rockets and the launch mechanisms for each. Many good resolution photographs accompany the text for illustration. Build projects come with plans and 'shopping lists' of required parts.

The chapters are:
Chapter 1 Let’s Fly Some Rockets!
Chapter 2 Model Rocketry Today
Chapter 3 Juno: A Solid Propellant Rocket
Chapter 4 Launch Pads
Chapter 5 Flight Operations
Chapter 6 Compressed Air Rockets
Chapter 7 Rocket Stability

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Highly Recommended - this book is a keeper! 10 octobre 2014
Par J. Finley - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book is great! It is so very accessible and easy to follow, and what I think makes it a keeper is that it has a wide range of topics. There are projects and concepts for everyone - from beginners to experienced rocketeers. On top of that, it is accommodating to different learning styles. If you are looking to learn why and how rockets work, you will enjoy reading the very clear explanations of the physical concepts behind them. If you are the more hands on type, you can get right down to the business of building and seeing the action. I look forward to sharing this book with my kids and picking out projects and lessons to do together - both for fun times and as homeschooling projects. It's definitely a book that I will be dipping into over and over again throughout the years.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great book for budding rocketeers 11 décembre 2014
Par W. Blair - Publié sur Amazon.com
Concentrating predominantly on "Low Power Rockets" which are the majority of the those you see in hobby and craft stores, usually from Estes Rockets, this book explains and illustrates in considerable detail how rockets and their motors work and how to properly build and safely launch them. If I had to chose one book for the rocketry novice or the rocket kit builder wanting to know more about how and why rockets and their motors work and how to design and build their own models from scratch, it would be this book. It provides the detailed instructions needed to "scratch build" from parts a number of very attractive rocket designs with various features and characteristics, provides detailed instructions on how to make from inexpensive and readily available hardware store parts your own launch pad of a very clever design, and shows how to build a simple electronic launch controller from Radio Shack parts. It also covers the design of and altitude prediction for rockets using computer simulators like Rocksim and Openrocket, has two chapters about water rockets and a sophisticated water rocket electronic parachute release mechanism, and has a short chapter illustrating the assembly of a small, commercially available reloadable motor system. The book is well worth the price, especially the discounted Amazon price which is considerably less than the US$44.99 retail price printed on the book's back cover.

Great book. I am a high school STEM teacher and Scut leader and this book is great for teaching, building, and learning about amateur rockets of all sizes and types.
