Jet pack, rocket belt, rocket pack and similar names are used for various types of devices, usually worn on the back, that are propelled by jets of escaping gases (or in some cases water) to let a single user propel themselves into the air or fly. The concept emerged from science fiction in the 1920s and became popular in the 1960s as the technology became a reality. The most common use of the jetpack has been in extra-vehicular activities for astronauts. Despite decades of advancement in the technology, the challenges of Earth’s atmosphere, Earth’s gravity, and the human body not being adapted to fly naturally, remain an obstacle to its potential use in the military or as a means of personal transport. As the human body is not naturally meant to fly, the jetpack must accommodate for all factors of flight such as lift and, to some extent, stabilization.


The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) system provides a reference-method for publicly known information-security vulnerabilities and exposures. MITRE Corporation maintains the system, with funding from the National Cyber Security Division of the United States Department of Homeland Security. CVE is used by the Security Content Automation Protocol, and CVE IDs are listed on MITRE’s system as well as the US National Vulnerability Database.
