πŸš€πŸš€ Complete Rocket Science Course with Kerbal Space Program

Engineering, Physics, Mathematics, Propulsion, Simulation, and more

This is the COMPLETE course on rocket science from beginner to advanced using the fun and realistic tool of the Kerbal Space Program.Β  Use the fun real-life physics of the Kerbal Space Program game to learn how rockets like the Falcon 9 and Starship work and the underlying first principles that govern their motion, operation, and engineering.Β  In no time you can feel like a real rocket scientist yourself, find yourself miles ahead in your traditional math and science coursework, and realize how fun learning and education can truly be!

Main topics

  • Rocket Science
  • Physics
  • Newtonian Mechanics
  • Newton’s Second Law of Motion
  • How Falcon 9 landing’s work
  • Aerospace Engineering
  • Aerodynamics
  • Orbital Mechanics
  • The math and science in each phase of a Falcon 9 mission
  • The primary forces affecting rocket flight
  • How those forces determine the motion

Who this course is for

  • Aspiring Rocket Scientists and Space Enthusiasts
  • SpaceX & Falcon 9 Enthusiasts
  • Learners hoping to progress in Engineering

Rocket science is a deep and varied subject, so it’s no surprise that this course touches on everything from rocket motion to combustion chemistry. When you know the basic ideas and formulas it should become clear where to look to push your skills and experience to wherever you dream of going but you need to take the first step to get there.

The course is the principles of rocket science. It gives emphasis on understanding the concepts in a systematic manner and its application with working examples of real-time data and using the space simulator Kerbal Space Program. Understand and analyze the specifications of any space engine like Vulcan or Merlin and space vehicles like Falcon or PSLV. Also, impart knowledge to estimate required specifications of solid motor or liquid engine or vehicle to meet a particular space application.

The course covers major concepts in calculating space orbit parameters, total velocity (energy) required to insert an object in a selected orbit. The course explains the fluid flow and energy conversion pattern in rocket nozzles in detail. It covers different solid and liquid propellant combinations available suitable for rocket application and discusses the properties and performance characteristics. The working of subsystems and components of both solid motor and liquid engine is explained in detail either as a booster or auxiliary propulsion unit in the space vehicle.
