World’s Largest Water Rocket [5.1 metre tall] launched by India achieved a world of 104 feet

World’s Largest Water Rocket is successfully launched by the Department of Aerospace Engineering Faculty and Students.
On 10/10/2019 evening at 7.20 PM, a team of faculty and students belongs to aerospace engineering, Chandigarh University has launched a water rocket which broken all the existing previous worldwide record. The previous record of the world’s largest water rocket measures 4.04 m (13 ft 3 in) tall and 44.5 cm (1 ft 5.5 in) in diameter, and was created and launched by Aidan and Keeley Aird (both Canada) on the set of “Furze World Wonders” in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, on 10 June 2017. A new record is created by a team of 3 aerospace engineering faculty and 18 aerospace engineering students of Chandigarh University which designed a Water Rocket with a configuration of 5.1 meters tall and 52 centimeters in diameter and by launching the team achieved an altitude of 104 feet on 10/10/2019. The attempt was taken place at Sports Complex of Chandigarh University where more than 100 people visualized the launch. Ajit Kumar Chetry and Shiv Kumar, the final year students of Aerospace Engineering of Chandigarh University have played a major role in designing, testing and analyzing the rocket and finally achieved these records within a budget of $500. With this attempt, the previous record is broken by a team of Chandigarh University in all categories of a) Height of the rocket, b) Diameter of the rocket, c) Maximum altitude attained by the rocket.  We are dedicating the achievement to the entire aerospace engineering community.
