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 photo was taken on October 23, 2004 from an altitude of 1,599 feet. The image clearly shows How different the ground appears from different altitudes when compared to the December 4, 2004 photo of the same area. Note the basketball court near the center of the image in the clearing. This reference point is 100 feet long.
