Rocket Investigation

We wondered why astronauts float in space. We learnt about the invisible force; Gravity by listening to a story about Sir Isaac Newton and an apple! We tried jumping up and down but realised we alwwys land back on the ground. We found out that rockets and planes need a huge powerful engine to overcome gravity. We then made our own rockets and thought about how to angle the, in order for them to fly high/long distances.
