Welcome to the Water Rocket Mailing list!

About the list

This list was created to provide a one-stop forum for the discussion of homemade rockets powered with compressed air and water, and of related topics.

It's now run by Yahoo, so this page simply serves as a policy page and to hold the old list archives (17,000 messages).

The typical rocket discussed here is constructed from discarded plastic soft drink bottles, partially filled with water, pumped with air to high pressure, and released. Altitudes for single stage rockets can exceed 300 feet, with top speeds over 100 miles per hour!

There are many web sites that provide basic information and pictures: if you're new to this topic, a browse through some of those sites is recommended. A good place to begin is Clifford's links list at <http://homes.managesoft.com.au/rockets/links.html>.

This is a very informal list, and the topics of discussion, while usually centered on water rockets, can range far and wide. However, we actively discourage the following. Sanctions range from polite private messages from me up to instant unsubscription.


The old list has closed now (the new one has archives on Yahoo), but these files contain the history of the list (15525 messages!).
