All parts of an aircraft are in GUHEM!
The engine is a complex system consists of many small parts such as cylinders, fans and pistons. The aircraft engine parts work together to produce an aircraft's electrical power and propulsion.
Landing Gears
Landing gears consist of very durable shock struts that connect the wheels to the body, shock absorbers which are spring-like structures used to reduce the severity and effect of jolts and vibrations during landing and take-off, and wheels.
Wings are the parts that are attached to both sides of the fuselage, provide lift force with air flow and enable the plane to fly. While the top of the wings is more curved, the lower parts are more flat.
The fuselage is a major aircraft component that connects the main parts of the aircraft, including the cockpit, where the pilot controls the aircraft, and the passenger compartment.
The tail is located at the very back of aircraft and helps with balance. It has two main components called the rudder, which contributes to the right and left direction of the aircraft, and the elevator, which helps the up and down movement.

Anatomy of a Rocket
Cargo Section
The payloads of a rocket to be launched into space can be cargo, a satellite to be placed in orbit, a space probe to be sent for exploration, or a crewed mission.
Liquid Fuel Tank
It is the heaviest part of the rocket. It is divided into upper stage and core stage. It is a liquid fuel tank.
Solid Fuel Propellants
The parts used to provide the additional thrust needed for the rocket to be freed of the gravitational force of the Earth. They are separated from rocket when their mission is complete.
Rocket Engine
The mechanisms that control the combustion of flammable and combustible materials and transfer the heat and gas to the external environment.
Discover The Planets
Jupiter is the first of the four gas giants of the Solar System. Like the other four, Jupiter has a thick and cold atmosphere, rings and lots of moons. The largest moons of the Jupiter -also known as Galilean moons- are Europa, Ganymede, Io and Callisto.
Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun. It is also referred to as the Red Planet because the iron oxide on Mars’s surface gives the planet a reddish appearance.
Uranus is a pale blue planet with visible cloud layers on its surface. Under its thick atmosphere, Uranus consists of frozen gases and a rocky core at the center. Also it is the first planet discovered with a telescope.
Neptune is the farthest planet from the sun, that’s why Neptune year is the longest one in the Solar System. The atmosphere is thick and very cold. Also it is the first planet discovered with the help of mathematical calculations.
Mercury is the smallest planet in the Solar System and also it is the closest one to the Sun. Its thin atmosphere cannot hold the heat so Mercury nights are very cold and dark.
Venus is the closest planet to Earth. Due to greenhouse effect, its surface is very hot. The orange sky of Venus frequently witnesses acid rains and lightnings. A Venus day is longer than a Venus year.
Famous for its majestic ring, Saturn is the least dense planet in the Solar System and has a density even less than that of water. In other words, this planet would be able to float on the ocean if you could find one large enough. Also Saturn's seven rings are the most massive and widest in the Solar System.
Earth is our home in space. It is the only planet having liquid water on the surface and -of course- life. Earth is the densest planet in the Solar System. This means, Earth is the planet with the largest mass relative to its volume.
As a medium-sized star, the Sun makes up 99.8% of the total Solar System mass. The energy radiated from sun is the most important source of life on Earth by photosynthesis and has significant effects on the Earth's climate.
