Rocket

The rocket sign is iconic. To sign rocket, first hold up your non-dominant hand vertically and facing one side of your body, as if it were a wall. Then form your dominant hand into the ASL letter R sign as you hold it parallel to the 'wall' of your other hand. Finally, launch your 'R' hand or 'rocket' up into space in a curved, squiggly motion, mimicking the staggered flight of a rocket ship as it defies Earth's gravitational pull.
