Rocketry (building)

Building our rocket for the first time was awesome. It took about two weeks to build them. We made the wings out of styrofoam covered in duct tape. We used two Vintage© bottles connected together for the body part of our rocket. Our first launch was a huge fail. It only reached a 15 degree angle from 50 meters away. What were trying to do next for our 2nd launch is to make an uncrooked bottle and no duck tape on our wings and smoothing it out with sand paper to make it more aerodynamic and light. Another thing our group was going to do was to roll paper to the shape of a nose cone. Our first nose cone failed because it was crooked also. Our first launch was a fail, but our second launch is going to be a success.


This is our group about to launch our rocket. I am the one in the red shirt. We are pumping air into the rocket. We are supossed to put 90 PSI and 200 ml into our rocket.
This is our Launch.  Skip to the 1 minute mark in the video to see the countdown.
