  • Interesting. I worked briefly in this field for a company that made missile controls. My uncle is a nuclear physicist. I love that they sent cameras up on the rockets. It's amazing what we do. I remember being in LA drunk at a margarita bar and stepping out to see the big colorful oil spill looking thing in the sky. It was a missile we launched fro Hawaii that we shot down from just north of malibu Ca

  • Better thank the Nazi's for getting you in Space America. Unfortunately you never did make it to the moon like Von Braun promised JFK, but you tried and staged an elaborate hoax.

    Americans took Von Braun a Nazi Scientist after the war and the plans to build a rocket, while the Russians took all of the Nazi hardware. Since the Russians had the hardware, they were the first into space. Remember the Sputnik.

    No one has made it to the moon. The Van Allen radiation belt would kill mere huma More..
