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.

It looks they have problems with the deployement of the parachute.

It seems the research for the the Ares rocket will be stopped, lack of funds...

They will try to force the DIRECT 2.0 or 3.0 aproch, it means to use the all the 3 rockets of the space shuttle.

In the top of the big orange tank they will put the cargo and below the tank they will but some nozzles to work as a rocket.

Put Direct 2.0 in the youtube or wikipedia and read about it.


Research and Development is the soul of WR
