Math-Freindly Science Discussion--Thursday, May 9, 7:00 pm, Center for Inquiry-Indiana, 350 Canal Walk, Suite A, Indianapolis. Topic: Rocket Science. Dave Terret (firstname.lastname@example.org) is the leader of this group.
Explore the history and some mathematical underpinnings of Rocketry. The basic problem has been getting to other planets; and rockets have been the primary solution. Is this important? Can this be regarded as a hard problem, a solved problem, or something in between? Are there other solutions? What are some creative solutions to this problem involving rockets that have been suggested recently? What else have rockets been used for?
