Let there. is a system of rockets having the rockets R1, R2, R3, . . . . . . . Rn with firing velocities of V1, V2 , . . . . . . .Vn respectively such that R 2 is on the top of R 1, R 3 is on the top of R 2 and so on. If all these rockets are fired with their respective velocities one after the other, starting from R 1, will the Vn = V 1 + V 2 + . . . . . . .V n ? If it is possible, then it is easy to design a system of rockets which will save the fuel, time and we can make incredible velocities of the space missions, possible. To save the payloads from jerking, the payloads may be housed in shock absorbing chamber in the rocket system.
