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.

Crud! I missed it!

I think they re-air the episodes on the weekend, so I should get another chance to see it.

Thanks for sharing!

I wonder what the conspiracy theorists thought about the laser experiment that they did in the end :D

Why do we have conspiracy theorists? It's so easy to prove them wrong.

Also, they could say that we shot a rocket at it, but never sent a human being.
