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

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.

Calling all U.K. Water Rocketeers!!

Post by The Mooseheads » Fri Jun 06, 2008 10:21 am

We've just received a request calling for U.K. Water Rocketeers to please respond. If you like in the U.K. please read the following announcement:


Dear Water Rocket Enthusiasts and Experts,

Production has begun on a major new series for the Children's BBC –
`Richard Hammond's Lab Rats'. Every show will feature a Big Idea,
where we take something small from within the episode and turn it
into a huge experiment – and this is where you come in!

Filming for this item has been penciled in for July 17th and should
take up half a day. We will be filming in a large disused airfield,
in the Surrey area (though this is subject to change, we will be try
to stay within an hour of our London office). We will cover any
travel and building expenses and refreshments will be provided on the
day.

Please email me at andycartwright@septemberfilms.com or call on 020
8563 9393 to discuss things further.

I look forward to hearing from you – the bigger and badder the water
rocket, the better!

All the best,

Andy

This sounds interesting. Too bad I don't live nearby. I'd love to know what they are up to.
