        This report is about rockets. There is a lot of interesting stuff about rockets. This report tells some of those things. I hope you will enjoy my report. Have you wondered who invented the rocket? Are you curious about the first rocket on the moon? Then read my report to find out.

History

This paragraph is about who invented the rocket. According to wikipedia Genghis Khan and Ogedei Khan invented rockets. The Mongolians had acquired the Chinese technology by conquest of the northern part of china. Back then Mongolians were very powerful.

 

This paragraph is about the first rocket on the moon. According to NASA. Gov Apollo 11 was the first rocket on the moon. The crewmates are Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Buzz Aldrin. Neil Armstrong said on the moon “One small step for man and one giant leap for mankind.” 

 

This paragraph is about NASA. According to wikipedia NASA was established on the 29th of July in 1958. Since the Apollo moon landing missions, the Skylab space station, and the space shuttle NASA has led U.S efforts for space exploration. That sounds really cool!

 

 

What It Is or Does

This paragraph is about the lynx. According to space.com the lynx is designed to carry a pilot into space. It was launched in 2010. The Lynx is the size of a small plane. According to the company officials It flies several times a day making use of reusable, non-toxic engines to keep the lynx's operating costs low. I think that it is really cool because the size is pretty big.

This paragraph is about the first satellite launched into orbit. According to wikipedia Sputnik 1 was the first satellite launched into orbit. It remained in orbit for several months. It was launched on October 4 1957. Talk about old news uh.

How it Works

This paragraph is about the new substance it uses for fuel. According to nasa.com NASA's Ames Research Center is testing candle wax as a new substance for rocket fuel. They have been testing it since 2001. Maybe you can make your own candle wax powered rocket!
