Introduction to Rocket Science and Engineering, Second Edition, presents the history and basics of rocket science, and examines
design, experimentation, testing, and applications. Exploring how rockets work, the book covers the concepts of thrust, momentum,
impulse, and the rocket equation, along with the rocket engine, its components, and the physics involved in the generation
of the propulsive force. The text also presents several different types of rocket engines and discusses the testing of rocket
components, subsystems, systems, and complete products. The final chapter stresses the importance for rocket scientists and
engineers to creatively deal with the complexities of rocketry.
