The Re-Inventors: Chinese Rocket
It's an early ancestor of the Apollo rockets that flew to the moon, but the Chinese rocket was created for more destructive missions. Developed in the 14th Century by the Chinese Navy, the missile was fired from land to attack ships. It was the world's first multi-stage weapon, flying for nearly a mile before shooting a stream of explosive-tipped arrows from the mouth of its dragon-shaped head. Could this weapon really inflict as much damage as the legends claim? The Re-Inventors launch an investigation to find out.

Ancient Chinese inventions paved the way for modern warfare technology, and the Re-Inventors aim to prove this fire-arrow launcher's explosive potential.
