Jetpacks, Rocket Science, and Basic Physics for Beginners

Rocket science is usually a term associated with something too complicated for mere mortals to comprehend. In reality, the basic principles are fairly simple and involve basic middle school or high school physics. In this video, Derek Muller illustrates Newton’s laws of physics as they apply to rockets and jetpacks and mentions a few other interesting facts along the way. This is an attention-grabbing introduction to the foundations of classical mechanics and as usual with such videos, motivates a further more detail-focused exploration of the subject.
