### Description

Mind Map on Rockets & Satellites and the Physics part of it.

## Resource summary

Rockets & Satellites
1. Rockets Lift Off?
1. The force generated to lift a rocket/shuttle in space requires a great amount of force, and it uses the third law of motion
1. As they lift off, they burn fuel and push the exhaust gases downward at a high velocity
1. The gases then push upward on the rocket with an equal but opposite force
2. A rocket can rise into the air because the gases it expels with a downward action force exert an equal but opposite reaction force on the rocket
3. Satellites
1. Any object that orbits another object in space
1. Circular Motion
1. Centripetal Force
1. Any force that causes an object to move in a circular path
2. Artificial Satellites
1. Artificial Satellites are launched my people so that there can be things such as weather forecasts, text messaging or anything like that
2. Satellite Motion
1. Why don't satellites fall to the Earth because of Gravity?
1. Satellite's have a greater horizontal velocity than a ball would have, satellites all around earth
2. Satellites in orbit around Earth continuously fall toward Earth, but because Earth is curved they travel around it
