The hybrid rocket


Recommended Posts

Do you have any information about so- called hybrid rockets? The only think I know about them, is that this type of rocket is uncrewed and guided and used for test in under microgravity conditions. I wanna know why it is exactly hybrid and are there some crewed rockets like that?

Because they use both solid and liquid  propellant.

To be more accurate it combines solid Hydroxyl Terminated Polybutadiene (HTPB) fuel and 90% Hydrogen Peroxide (H202) liquid oxidiser. But now I am looking for the answer what this kind of rockets is used for?
