Rockets, or a rocket, is an engine or a tall, thin, round vehicle that uses rocket engines for space travel or as a weapon. A rocket operates by burning fuel into gases, which it pushes out, making the rocket move forward and quick. Rockets have their origins in China, where they were used for fireworks and in wars.
Today, they still have the same purpose but most visible with the military and rebel leaders. The more massive rockets are launched from a fixed position on the ground while the more portable once from a truck. One of the notable achievements in using rockets is in the launching of satellites, sending probes to other worlds, scientific research, and carrying payloads into space.
