Welcome to the Water Rocket Forum, sponsored by The Water Rocket Achievement World Record Association.

Since our founding in 2003, we've become the largest, most sophisticated and ground breaking group supporting you, the serious water rocket flyer! Whether you are a beginner or an expert, the WRA2 has something for everyone.

A water rocket is a type of model rocket using water as its reaction mass. The pressure vessel (the engine of the rocket) is constructed from thin plastic or other non metallic materials (usually a used plastic soft drink bottle) weighing 1,500 grams or less. The water is forced out by compressed air. It is an example of Newton's third law of motion.

Northwest Manitoba Checking In...

Postby sputnik57 » Tue Jun 06, 2017 8:58 pm

Hi! I just built a water rocket and launcher for my wife's physics class yesterday. We launched last night. It was terrific! It just disappeared into the sky. So I thought I'd check in here and see what you have to offer? I'm an old guy, with a farm and a workshop. I can see myself getting carried away already. Is there a BRA? (Bottle Rockets Anonymous) just in case? :D

Anyway, it's good to be here...

Welcome. I envy you living on a farm. Where I am (California SF Bay Area) it is hard to find any open space where you can be confident of recovering your rocket without it getting stuck in a tree or landing on top of a building. I have to travel a fair distance.
