just because our space program hasnt been to mars or any of the other planets doesnt mean that it cant be done by others out there in the solar system already, we might be isolated from them for a good reason while caring for this planets natural habitat and moving into the future without too much pushing and shoving from them

How about mainstream science and what would you be basing this assumption on?

Your assuming there isn't science that's kept hidden from the mainstream community?

Where do you think science comes from?

Any examples of the military using any "unknown science?" Ever?


Although of course it did start in the normal scientific community in the ordinary scheme, nuclear fission was kept extremely quiet after its discovery in 1938, and in particular the particular neutron emitting properties which could result in an exponential chain reaction. (Szilard & Fermi) The public, and much of the scientific community, had no idea until August 1945.

This is what I was lead to understood, but I may be corrected on this.

Consider yourself corrected.

The "scientific community", that is, the community of Physicists, was well aware of the possibility of nuclear fission.

Rutherford (born New Zealand; worked Scotland) was the first to 'split' an atom in 1919. Enrico Fermi (Italian) showed that neutrons can split atoms in 1934. Hahn and Strassman (Germany) were the first to split the uranium atom in 1939. These guys were all working off theories developed in public by Einstein, Bohr, and hundreds of other physicists all over the world.

The world of physics was working on this stuff for years, and NOT in secret, papers and results were shared freely and openly. The fact that the average 'man on the street' is not intimately familiar with every new development on the bleeding edge of science isn't because it is done in secret, its because the 'man on the street' is not involved in bleeding edge science.

That is why when Hahn and Strassman split the uranium atom, they encouraged Roosevelt to build the bomb before the Germans had a chance to realize the potential for an effective weapon.

Certainly the war effort was secret - there is a lot more to weaponizing a fission reaction than just being able to get a chain reaction going.
