Abstract: The is the main and very important part of the space transportation system. In this paper an attempt has been made about the history of Rocket Engine, types of Rocket Engines and future scope in the technology of theRocket Engines. Also, an attempt about physics behind the jets, and advantages and disadvantages of every rocket engine is made in this review paper.

1. Introduction creating incendiary weapons from the mid-eighth to the end of the thirteenth century—two of which are . The first Rocket Engines are basically used to store the rocket mass of recipe calls for one part, which is sulfur, added to six parts for forming its high speed propulsive jet. of saltpeter (potassium nitrate) dissolved in laurel oil, then Those vehicles which are propelled by rocket engines are inserted into hollow wood and lit to actually fly away commonly known as rockets. Rockets function on the whenever you want, to whatever destination you wish and principle of Newton’s 3rd law of motion. We always see that burn up everything. The second recipe combines a pound of most of the rocket engines use combustion, but non- sulfur, two pounds of charcoal, and six pounds of saltpeter— combusting (such as cold gas ) forms also exist. all finely powdered on a marble slab. Then this powder mixture is packed firmly into a long and narrow case. The In comparison, of rocket engine to other types of jet engines, saltpeter’s introduction into pyrotechnic mixtures connected rocket engines are by far the lightest, have the highest thrust the shift from hurled Greek fire into self-propelled rocketry. and have least propellant efficiency. Rocket engines become more efficient with higher velocities, due to greater Rocket type engines were also used by Tippu Sultan, the propulsive efficiency and the Oberth effect. Since they do king of Mysore. These rockets could be of various sizes, but not require any atmosphere, they are well suited for uses at commonly consisted or used of a tube of soft hammered iron very high altitudes and in space. about 8 in (20 cm) long and 1 1⁄2–3 in (3.8–7.6 cm) diameter, closed at one end and strapped to a shaft of bamboo about 4 ft (120 cm) longer. The iron tube which was 2. History of Rocket Engine used acted as a combustion chamber and it contained well packed black powder propellant.
