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.

This is amazing!

I saw that on TV last week on one of those science news segments. I think it might have been on Science Channel. The thing looks like a lot of fun! USWR should get one so they can fetch their rocket faster when it lands in the water!

I'd love to know that specs of the system. If we could get the flow rate of the pump then we would finally know how much water it really takes to fly a man and we could prove once and for all if the water rocket bottle pack would fly a person!
