So by this law, how does a rocket moves in the space?
A rocket engine has to expel mass in some way; it uses conservation of momentum to do so. The rocket law,
says that, given the ejection speed of the fuel, the initial and final mass of the rocket, you can get the difference of velocities between launch and the time where you know the rocket's mass.
