The environment: An issue with fireworks is potassium perchlorate - an inorganic salt used for a variety of products such as road flares, explosives, pyrotechnics and solid rocket propellant
The "propergol" rocket propellant
and the warheads' explosive content will be burnt at very high temperature in a special furnace, emissions from which will pass through several stages of filtration.
The goal of this project was to improve the performance of a model rocket propellant
through the addition of other chemicals while retaining the safety and castability of the propellant.
High-performance solid rocket propellant
can be impact-sensitive in itself.
MOJAVE -- Two men were killed and four people were injured Thursday when rocket propellant
exploded at a Mojave Airport site being used by Scaled Composites, a company founded by aircraft designer Burt Rutan.
Perchlorate is a chemical found in the environment both from natural sources and from human activities, including the production of explosives and rocket propellant
Ammonium perchlorate (perchlorate) is a primary ingredient in solid rocket propellant
and has been used for decades by the Department of Defense (DOD), the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and the defense industry in the manufacturing, testing, and firing of rockets and missiles.
Humans need oxygen to breathe, but it's also an essential component of rocket propellant
Mughal is also charged with possessing information about a recipe for rocket propellant
and guidance on causing an explosion.
Mughal and Younis are alleged to have been in possession of recipes for rocket propellant
and how to make and plant a bomb, and to possess a piece of paper with the words "Hospital = Attack" written on them.
In the United States ammonium perchlorate is used as an oxidizer in solid rocket propellant
, sodium perchlorate is used in slurry explosives and potassium perchlorate is used in road flares and air bag inflators.
with the most thrust (push) is made of oxygen and hydrogen--mid there are plenty of these elements on the moon.
