E11708: Introduction to Rocket Propulsion in Splash 2017 (Nov. 18 - 19, 2017)
Have you ever wondered how rockets work and how we use them to explore the solar system? This course will cover the basic physics of rocket propulsion using Newton's laws of motion. The physics behind chemical rockets like the Space Shuttle main engine and electric propulsion thrusters such as ion engines will be presented both conceptually and mathematically.
