  Rocket - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A rocket is a vehicle, missile or aircraft which obtains thrust by the reaction to the ejection of fast moving exhaust gas from within a rocket engine.
Rockets where the heat is supplied from other than the propellant, such as steam rockets, are classed as external combustion engines.
Rockets became extremely military important in the form of intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) when it was realised that nuclear weapons carried on a rocket vehicle were essentially not defensible against once launched, and they became the delivery platform of choice for these weapons.

 Rocket   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
A rocket is a vehicle, missile, aircraft (or the engine employed to propel these) which operates by ejecting a reaction mass formed by the combustion of a propellant with an oxidiser, both of which are carried by the rocket; see Newton's 3rd Law of Motion.
Rockets are commonly used when it is necessary to carry all the fuel a vehicle needs (such as in outer space) and there is no other substance (land, water, or air) that a vehicle may push itself with.
V2 Rockets, designed by Wernher Von Braun, one of the principal players in modern rocket development, were used extensively by Adolf Hitler in the latter stages of World War II as weapons of reprisal against the British population.

Usefulness depends on how dynamic your list is, ie, is it fixed length, can it grow but not shrink, etc, but this may be a good compromise for what you want.
A list is a good solution to a problem that requires sequential access.
