Rockets are used to send people (like astronaut Sally Ride) or supplies into space. But to get a rocket off the ground, all the rocket parameters must be perfect. It is the job of aerospace engineers, like Mary Golda Ross, to run experiments and discover the best way to send a rocket into space.
Use this rocket launch simulator from the New Zealand government's Science Learning Hub to see how high you can make the rocket go! Can you get the payload into space?
