I am a kid pursuing a career in propulsion, and I was wondering, "how does a turbopump work?" I would really appreciate a detailed explanation.

    $\begingroup$ So the thing to do is, edit your question and change it to ask this instead of the original, too general question. That way it will show up in the site's list of questions and possibly attract someone to answer it. The rules for asking questions here can seem somewhat strict but they help maintain a well-ordered site. $\endgroup$ – Organic Marble Mar 22 '19 at 14:26
