Origami Tessellations: Rocket Science

 This tessellation is the result of me messing around with repeating linear rhombuses and trapezoids. It kind of looks to me like the rhombuses are launching rockets. Hence the name. 

One side is strictly rhombuses and trapezoids. 

The other side has quite a few triangles. 

These collapsing folds are very versatile. There are so many pattern to be found. 

Creating one is often just a matter of putting a few shapes together and filling in the gaps with triangles. 

I used pretty flimsy paper, so it's not nearly as perfect as I would like it to be. 

Given how obvious the various shapes are, a crease pattern hardly seem necessary, but I'll include one just the same.
