Clear step-by-step instructions with full-colour illustrations and templates accompany each project, starting out with how to construct a reusable launch pad. If you'd like to track your rockets' performance, it even includes instructions on how to build a clinometer to measure their altitudes and trajectories. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to build these projects, but who knows what career path you'll take after you do?
Paul Jarvis is a full-time engineer and a trained pyrotechnician. Making soda-pop rockets allows him to combine both of these disciplines, with appealingly explosive results. With this book he hopes to show that the art of bottle rocketry needn't be rocket science.
