Jetpack Rocket Science - With Derek Muller


The fantastic Derek Muller (aka Veritasium) has a fantastic new video about the physics behind jetpack rocket science. Newton's third law tells us that this should be fairly simple, but is it simple to demonstrate? You'll have to watch to find out!

The views expressed are those of the author and are not necessarily those of Scientific American.
