Please Help Me!!

1. I have a physics paper due tomorrow about how physics relates to shuttle launching and every search engine tells me how about the shuttle mission and nothing else.



2. So does anyone have any ideas that I can work off of?



3. Or does anyone have a useful website that I can gather information from?

How about the elementary principle that describe the actual launching process ? Conservation of total energy, gravitational interaction ??? Take your pick.

wikipedia.org is a good place to start for non-controversial basic science stuff. Here's their page on rockets (which the Shuttle is, after all):

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rocket

They might have a separate page on the Space Shuttle as well.
