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.

We lost Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett, and Michael Jackson all in the same week. I think most of us can say we grew up with these people. It's a very sad week indded.

Jackson pretty much turned public opinion against himself and he was generally considered an unbalanced and troubled person. Two days ago he would have been given no sympathy by anyone and would have been the butt of all kinds of jokes. In passing suddenly everybody forgives his transgressions and he's now being remembered in a positive light. For him to fake his own demise anticipating this reaction would support your conspiracy theory.

It looks like there's more to the story than originally reported. We will have to wait for the test results before the public can know for sure what happened.
