Rockets of today are a remarkable collection of human ingenuity, science and technology of the past 120 years, with roots in Russia, the US, Romania and Germany.

Times change. Satellite launches, a monopoly of governments in the past, have shifted to the private sector.  Really outstanding in this sense was a launch to the moon by an Israeli non-profit public organization SpaceIL.

In this presentation, we will cover the origins of space flight, early flights to space, highlight Saturn 5 and the Apollo programs, and learn about modern rockets, reusable rockets, 3G printed rockets and launches from aircrafts.

Time permitting, we may launch a rocket of our own - using a water filled soda bottle!
