The Chemistry of a Rocket Launch
Chemist Andrea Sella combines dimethylhydrazine with dinotrogen tetroxide to show how hypergolic mixtures fire rockets into space. There are a few ways to use chemistry to power a rocket, but all involved an oxider and a fuel. And with no oxygen in space, what’s the best solution? Professor ...
Nitrogen triiodide is a highly unstable substance that detonates when disturbed. So we disturbed it.
