Yes, the booster rockets. This usually happens after their fuel has been spent, and they merely drop back to earth and land in the ocean where they are retrieved and used again for another flight.

How do satellites get in the air?

Satellites are attached to a rocket, just like sending a manned flight into space. As the rocket ascends, its boosters fall back to earth. Once the satellite reaches the correct altitude, it begins to orbit the earth. All of the boosters or rocket pieces fell to earth; most burn up in the higher atmosphere so there's no harm to life. Some parts may fall into the ocean.

What does a space rocket that an airplane doesn't have?

A space rocket will carry it's own oxygen, or some other gas, to burn to power the vehicle. Aeroplane's that fly in Earth's atmosphere normally use a jet engine, that takes in air, mixes it with fuel and burns it for propulsion. Also a rocket ship needs a good navigation system. An aeroplane can use a compass and Global Positioning Satellites. A compass and GPS are not going to be much good in outer space. Especially if the rocket ship leaves Earth orbit.
