Summary

This research paper delves into the profound environmental consequences associated with various stages of Rocketry. It investigates the environmental footprint arising from rocket manufacturing, fuel production, rocket transportation, and the act of launching itself. Additionally, a comparative analysis of greenhouse gas emissions between the rocket industry, the automotive sector, and the xyz industry is conducted, along with a projection of future comparisons. Furthermore, the study evaluates potential solutions to mitigate these adverse impacts and explores hypothetical alternative methods for launching rockets. The paper also examines the sustainability implications of rocket operations, presenting arguments both for and against their continued use.
