Rockets flying chair. He would attach the chair to

Rockets have existed throughout time. In this report, I will be talking about rocketry’s uses, the original maker, how it affected the world throughout time. Three things I learned was that the rockets were first used for warfare in 1232. Wang Hu had dreamed to go to space so he made one of the first rockets to carry a man. Some people think that he made it into space and is now “The Man in the Moon.”The first rocket used not for celebratory reasons was in the year of 1232 when the Chinese and Mongolian were at war with each other. The Chinese were already experimenting with the rocket. They accidentally made a weak form of gunpowder using saltpeter, sulfur, and charcoal dust. They started to use this to create explosions in religious times. They filled bamboo tubes with the mixture then threw it into the fire. Some of the tubes would fail to explode and they would be propelled by the gases and sparks from the burning gunpowder.The Chinese would soon start to experiment with the gunpowder-filled tubes. At some point, they would attach the tubes to arrows so they could be shot. The Chinese would soon find out that the Rockets can be propelled themselves. This primitive rocket would help repel the Mongol invaders at the battle of Kai-Keng.While the Mongolians and Chinese fought a monk named Roger Bacon wrote about gunpowder in his book Epistola Gratis R. Baconis, de secretis operibus artis et naturase er nullitate magea.  He would work to improve the formula for gunpowder that would greatly increase the range of rockets. Jean Froissart found out that a tube will make the flight of the rocket more accurate. He would create the forerunning idea of the RPG a rocket-propelled grenade and the bazooka.  Both are still in use today though the gunpowder mixer has changed.In the 16 century, rockets became a major asset in war and for celebratory means. An interesting old Chinese legend described the use of rockets as a mean of transportation. With the help of many assistants, a lesser-known Chinese official Wan-Hu assembled a rocket-powered flying chair. He would attach the chair to two large kites which had forty-seven fire arrow rockets fixed to the kites. On the day of the flight, Wan-Hu sat in the chair and had his assistants light the rockets. When the smoke cleared Wan-Hu and his chair was gone. If the event did take place it is unlikely that he actually got air. Fire arrows were more apt to explode and not fly. In the latter of the 17th century, the foundation of modern rocketry would be laid down by Sir Isaac Newton
