Space exploration is one of the most amazing endeavours that man has ever undertaken. One of the biggest challenges in rocket launching lies in the selection of appropriate propellant. In recent years, there is an emerging trend in the development of various types of propellant, as the most crucial part in space research is the choice of propellant used which determines the performance of the space vehicle. Here in this article, we present an over view on different types of propellant which is used in rocket like solid, liquid, gas, and hybrid propellant. A systemic study on various chemical and physical properties of the material enables us to understand their behavior in various extreme conditions. These analysis help us to predict the efficient fuel suitable for the rocket engine thereby satisfying the basic parameters such as environmental safety, high performance and low cost.
