Blast Off!

Ever since my teacher said that we were going to be building and launching our rockets, I was immeditaley excited! My group decided to 3D print our nose cone. It was the first year of launching with a 3D printed nose cone.  

On our first launch my group had a surprise. I was in the of pumping and all of a sudden…pop. I look up and see the bottom half of our rocket on the floor and the top half spinning in the sky! I was a little disappointed that our rocket didn’t go through the sky as one piece but it was still a lot of fun.

For our second launch my group use the same design and the same nose cone. We just re-made the wings and used a fresh bottle. When we launch for the second time we decided to use water in addition to air and our rocket went the rocket. This is what my group’s rocket looked like on the second launch right before it went up, up, up.
