Rocket Science

IDIOM of the week!


It's not rocket science!

IDIOM of the week!
The science behind rockets is particularly complex. And “failure is not an option”, as they say in the movie Apollo 13. The phrase that qualifies something as “not being rocket science” appeared in the 1980s and replaced another phrase that was used before: “It’s not brain surgery”. Older phrases with a similar meaning include “It is easy as pie”.
