MJPL Water Rockets

Welcome to the web page of the Meyernreuth Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The MJPL develops, manufactures and operates high-powered, reusable, inexpensive, environment-friendly rocket propelled vehicles.

This site documents our experiments with water rockets. So far we have a launcher capable of reliably launching rockets at pressures of up to 10 bars. In October 2003 we launched the first rockets which were not only mere bottles.

There are some excellent tutorials and introductory texts on water rocketry on the web.

Big thanks go to Jonathan for taking pictures.
