During the 1920's he elaborated his theories of multistage-rockets and began working out his theory of the flight of jet airplanes, devoting a number of papers to this. It is in this work (and in "The Rocketplane") he developes the theory of the liquid-fuel jet engine in an aeroplane and for the first time in technical literature describes the turbo-prop aircraft, -and in great detail. "... This is an indispensible contribution of Russian science to the common treasury of human culture." (Collected Works, NASA, 1954, II: p.17).His theories on rocket propulsion are some of his most vital and progressive of his discoveries. For his methods of studying the dynamics of rocket flight and his approach to interplanetary travels he has, after much struggle, won world recognition and is now widely known. "Tsiolkovskiy pushed back the frontiers of human knowledge, and his idea of using the rocket for the exploration of space is only now, in our own time (i.e. 1954), beginning to be fully appreciated. He was the father of the theory of long-range liquid-fuelled rockets and the founder of a vigorously scientific theory of inter-planetary travel." (Collected Works, NASA, 1954. II: p. 3). He was thus the founder of modern rocket dynamics. His works on rocket dynamics and t … [Click Below for Full Description]
