To think that the U.S. would have gone nowhere without Von Braun is nonsense. Typical thinking of the average elitist.
Why don't you admit you hate and resent America, and only come here to bad mouth the U.S..
Now, you deny that you claimed that U.S. jets and space travel would have been nothing without Von Braun, by claiming what your really meant was that with Von Braun the U.S. got where we got a whole lot quicker. Big difference between nothing and getting there a whole lot quicker, and as I pointed out, the same is true for the Russians, if not more so.
My same argument still applies. You have no idea how rocket technology was developed, and the idea that it all evolved around one man is nothing but typical elitist fluff as I originally stated.
During the 20's independent research took place with the United States,Austria,Britain,Czechoslovakia,France,Italy,Germany,and Russia had a rocket research program.The most advanced and extensive work was done in Russia.During WW2 the Germans were the pioneers.
Besides, you don't even have a decent grasp of the issue at hand, what makes you think you should control the direction of the discussion.
Nothing does not mean, not where it is today, nothing means, would not exist. Look up the word in the dictionary.
Yes, the Chinese developed the first rocket, does that mean that they rule the world?
This idea that one man makes it all happen is total nonsense, the kind of elitist thinking that most fall into. This is the idealism on which cultures stagnate and die.
Congratulations, you managed to grab onto an obscure fact to make you look almost intelligent. Pray tell, what does this have to do with the subject at hand?
Why don't you get off the thead, and the entire site. In all the posts I have ever read by you, you have yet to demonstrate intelligence. You have been beaten in this debate every step of the way, and shown to be nothing but a hater.
