Thanks for your post. If you are not following a program or technology closely, or if it is highly classified, it seems to have come from nowhere simply because you are not aware of the "somewhere" from which it came. This was true of the A-Bomb in the 1940s, stealth technology in the 1980s, etc.

Thanks for your post, McGinty. I'm not sure what to think about the capability of my knowledge, such that is, being a medium for lessening danger. I'm happy to be on ATS, and if it becomes less dangerous because of me, then I'll take it. :-)
To answer your question, I have heard too many storiues about these secret projects in Germany and for too long to think they are without substance. Whether there is anything to the "myth" (as you called it) of the advanced propulsion "Bell," I do not know, not have I seen hard evidence, and I am a hard evidence kind of guy.

Thanks for your post. There are always landmarks visible under VFR conditions on a clear day. Bodies of water, bays, peninsulas. Think of all that is visible from outer space.
