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.

Meet the Team S.P.E.W. 2013 Astronaut crew.
Hope to get some 0 G shots of them in action.

They have already proven themselves by being launched out of a slingshot catapult with the sole purpose of knocking stuff over with their bodies.

I don't know, they aren't looking so good after that last ride when their rocket broke apart on impact.
