A rocket engine is a type of jet engine that uses only stored rocket propellant mass for forming its high speed propulsive jet. Rocket engines are reaction engines, obtaining thrust in accordance with Newton’s third law. Most rocket engines are internal combustion engines, although non-combusting forms such as cold gas thrusters also exist.

The strength of a rocket is measured in pounds of thrust. A pound of thrust is the amount of force required to keep a one pound object stationary against gravity. In order to generate this thrust, rockets burn one of two types of fuel, solid fuel or liquid fuel. Because of this fact, rockets are often classified by the type of fuel that they burn.

Fundamentally rockets are very simple designs, but incredibly complex to design, build and fly. Take a peek at the basics of how and why a chemical rocket engine works.
