Lift off!

Starting with the one simple principle that has powered every rocket that's ever flown, 2008 CHRISTMAS LECTURE presenter Professor Chris Bishop launches through an explosive journey to the moon and back.

This lecture from the Cambridge science festival is packed with demonstrations of the science that sends people into space. A family-filled lecture theatre sees flying projectiles, the fiery combustion of energetic propellants, and the impressive roar and flame of a hybrid rocket engine.
