Rocket Science (TV Series)
Rocket Science is a BBC television documentary series, first broadcast in March 2009 on BBC Two, exploring new ways to teach science to children. Across the UK, fewer and fewer youngsters want to study chemistry and physics, so with the help of physics teacher Andy Smith, Rocket Science sets out to convert a small sample by teaching them everything safe there is to know about fireworks. The series was filmed over a period of nine months.

Famous quotes containing the words science and/or rocket:
“You are bothered, I suppose, by the idea that you cant possibly believe in miracles and mysteries, and therefore cant make a good wife for Hazard. You might just as well make yourself unhappy by doubting whether you would make a good wife to me because you cant believe the first axiom in Euclid. There is no science which does not begin by requiring you to believe the incredible.”
—Henry Brooks Adams (18381918)
“A rocket is an experiment; a star is an observation.”
—José Bergamín (18951983)
