To what empirical fact are you referring ?
To what laws of physics does this fact conform ?
My assumption, shared by others, is that man has never achieved flight beyond a hypothetical 80-120 Km altitude.
Three hundred years ? That is it ?
You are right, humanity has never been known to be wrong for 300 years.
Has sir Isaac Newton visited outer space perhaps to test the validity of his theories on classical mechanics ?
Then we were insulted for our efforts with the claim that all cranks use, i.e. that we're all brain washed and can't think for ourselves, which is utter nonsense.
I thoroughly agree with your statement. You are among some of the brightest and most stimulating human beings on the planet, and true heirs to Thales of Militus.
If he had the chance to fart in space, he'll believe us.

As the gun barrel has little to nothing in common with the rocket engine, which is to say that the rocket has no projectile to produce backpressure and thus propulsion, I have to maintain that I am not convinced sorry. No disrespect intended and I am very willing to listen.
I do believe that the kick back in space with the rifle though extremely small and short lived could produce a miniscule amount of propulsion in space.
I agree that the potential energy/force of an explosion/fuel will always be the same; simply put “it is what it is”. But I ask respectfully; doesn’t the resulting action or reaction totally depend on the environment?
