A rocket was a device that moved by exerting a large amount of force in the direction opposite to travel. Many spacecraft were rockets.
Transport use[edit | edit source]
The use of rockets on Earth had been temporarily abandoned during the 21st century in favour of the T-Mat. The Second Doctor, Jamie McCrimmon and Zoe Heriot travelled in a rocket from Earth to the Moon. Professor Eldred, a scientist who had a long history with rocketry, had constructed the rocket as part of a plan to take Man beyond the moon. The engines were burnt out when the rocket arrived on the moon. (TV: The Seeds of Death)
