MICKEY MOUSE TOY ROCKET


DISCUSSION

Mickey's rocket is of the single stage to orbit type (SSTO). Its four fins provide aerodynamic stability during ascent through the atmosphere. Space helmet in hand, Mickey prepares to open the viewing hatch to enter the rocket. How will the rocket ever leave Earth? The passenger compartment is so large that there is no room for fuel tanks. Rockets, like automobiles, need fuel to power their engines.
