Hey all, I've decided to teach a course on rocket science. This will cover the basics of rocketry, and will briefly touch on some orbital mechanics later in the course. Lectures and associated assignments will go up every Monday and will be due by 11:59 PM Eastern Time the following Sunday night.
First Class: Monday, June 8th 2015
Week 1 - Physics of Flight Week 2 - Basic Rocket Construction Week 3 - Thrust and Specific Impulse Midterm Test and 1-Week Break Week 4 - Δv or Changing Velocity Week 5 - Orbit and Return Week 6 - Basic Orbital Mechanics Final Exam
There are two options in taking the class, either as a formal student or by auditing the course. Formal students will be required to do the assignments and tests, but will be graded and receive credit at the completion of the course. By contrast, those auditing the course don't have to do the assignments or tests, but won't receive credit for having taken the class, so please indicate your preference.
