OK, I'll play along.
I'm curious about the history of rocketry. Perhaps you could illuminate me about this.
Early efforts included launching small rockets into the atmosphere. Gradually, rockets got bigger, more powerful, and went higher. At what point did
the people building and launching rockets realised rockets couldn't go up into space (or that space is fake, as some people believe)? Why wouldn't
they document their findings, why keep it a secret from the public?
The German V-2 rocket used in WW2 went up to 90km high, which is practically space, and could achieve 206 km if launched vertically.
BTW, early rocket scientists were from different countries (Germany, Russia, USA), and quite independent from the government.
Another thing is, ICBMs go up into what can be considered space (there's practically a vacuum there), so if rockets don't work in space that would
mean the whole defence/attack system is worth zilch.
