If the Center of Pressure moves in front of the Center of Gravity, the rocket will become unstable. The Center of Gravity (CG) needs to be towards the front of the rocket and the Center of Pressure (CP) towards the back for optimal stabilization. If this balance is disturbed, the rocket may start to tumble or spiral out of control.
