Carbon dioxide gas is formed when vinegar and baking soda are mixed inside the cosmic rocket. As the chemical reaction quickly proceeds, more and more carbon dioxide is produced. There comes a point when the cavity of the rocket can't hold any more of the accumulated gas and it escapes from the bottom of the rocket. This provides a strong 'thrust' force and results in the rocket shooting high into the air. Based on the same principle of motion as a real rocket, have a blast of a time and learn lots at the same time.
