The history of modern rocketry began during WW 2. German engineers were able to design rockets that were capable of reaching England from Germany and these rockets had warheads that would explode on contact. The Germans advanced from their V-1 rocket to a more powerful V-2 rocket. Using WW 2 airplanes as the British did, to try and intercept a rocket was near impossible. What saved the British was that the warheads used by the Germans were small compared to the damage a group pf German bombers could inflict with massive bombing attacks on London, for example. Also, the number of rocket launches the Germans could muster were relatively small. After WW 2, the Soviets and the USA each took German rocket scientists back to their nations and used German expertise to develop stonger and more powerful rockets. These rockets were not however, used for attacking. They were used as a defensive mechanism to discourage attacks.
Later, rocketry advanced to the level of allowing space travel. The most impressive use of rocketry was allowing the USA to land men on the moon.

You can start at the Rockets link below. It has information on the history of rocketry, and several useful links.
24 or 25 of rockets were launched in space.
The Rockets began their franchise history as The San Diego Rockets in 1967. After a very disappointing debut, the team was moved to Houston in 1971.
In the past rockets have been used for many different things. In the 1200's, Chinese soldiers used them against their enemies. In 1930, Robert Goddard, was the first to set earthlings on a path into space. Hundreds of space crafts and satellites have been lifted into space by rockets. These satellites send information back to earth.

The flame thrower was considered a new weapons, though it can trace its roots to ancient Greece. The V-2 Rockets were new, but rockets have been used for centuries prior to that, just nothing on that large a scale. The Bazooka was new, but it was based on rockets and mortars. The Atomic Bomb was the biggest change and its development dominated world history for the next 50 years.
The newest rocket to have been launched is the Japanese H2B.
all that have not landed or shot down, or creased.
Practical use of scientific information of pure and applied research can be named technology. So, research and advancements in rockets is technology.
Total of 135 missions have been launched 2 of whiched were lost
