What was the first country to produce rocket?
Who developed the first liquid fueled rocket?
The first flight of a vehicle powered by a liquid-rocket took place onMarch 16, 1926 at Auburn, Massachusetts, when American professor Robert H. Goddard launched a rocket which used liquid oxygen and gasoline as propellants. The rocket, which was dubbed "Nell", rose just 41 feet during a 2.5-second flight that ended in a cabbage field, but it was an important demonstration that liquid rockets were possible.
Asked in Chemistry, Space Travel and Exploration
Why is oxygen needed by rockets and how do they get it?
Oxygen is used in liquid-fueled rocket motors as a combustion product, usually in conjunction with liquid hydrogen as well. In space, Oxygen is extremely thin at extreme altitudes, and it only occurs in space at the molecular level. It isn't enough to sustain the combustion of a liquid-fueled rocket motor once it enters the upper atmosphere without being fed liquid oxygen.
