United States ships 88 German scientists to America to assist the nation in its production of rocket technology.

you steal German technology, **** U AMERICAN!

There are certain subjects that attract too many inane, juvenile and ******* stupid kids spouting off their uninsightful opinions, this is one of them.
Let me break it down easily for you: what is an American? The US is a nation of immigrants - people come from all around the world, and everyone, except the native American Indians, have an ethnic background from somewhere else.

The German scientists that contributed their knowledge (notice I said "contributed", they weren't the SOLE reason for development in the moon landing project) were given citizenship and became just as much American as anyone else. That's what's so great about the US; it, in many cases, combines the best aspects and strengths of many different cultures, making it harder to stagnate.

The image you so tragically try to paint is "ohhh, stupid Americans stealing tech from the Germans, typical!" which is folly and to be frank, reveals supreme ignorance on your part. Calling America a stupid nation makes you a stupid person, because America is a melting pot of every ethnic group and culture - including yours. This means that anything America accomplishes, you should be proud of. You are just as capable as anyone else to be an American, technically speaking.

Also, if it was stolen tech from the Germans, where are their moon landings? To "steal" implies an involuntary change of ownership of an object or information.

Landing on the moon was an American endeavor, and a giant leap for mankind. Remember, the whole world was watching. Everyone wanted America to succeed, save for the Russians. Stop being a stuck up, self-righteous little dickweed.

You text was okay but, I never heard of a country named America, have you? Wait, I'll go check on a map... Well, theres a continent called America, but no, can't see America as a country,strange, Are you talking about Canada? Venezuela?

Maybe they should teach you less about eating and more about the name of your country .

PS. It's named the United-states of America, you arn't the only ones in America. Retard.

Are you serious? You're main counterpoint was that he called the US "America"? Everyone calls it America. Unless you go around saying United States of America everywhere you go.
#263 to #218 - anonymous (04/28/2013) [-]
don't be a **** . everyone knows that it's just a shortened version of "united states of america" canada's official title doesn't have the name america in it, neither does venezuela, or mexico or brazil. what you're doing is like bitching at someone for saying "russia" because technically it's called the russian federation.

just because we use "america" when we refer to the USA doesn't mean we aren't aware that north america and south america are continents. it's not like canadians or brazilians can't refer to themselves as americans. but the word America is in our official name, so the idea we can't call ourselves americans is ******* stupid. you assume it's because we are "arrogant" because you are an idiot who believes every stereotype you hear.

a comment about NASA on a post about the US military. the majority of american federal funding goes to the military, which severely impedes what NASA can do.

NASA is actually a part of the US AirForce...
User avatar #102 to #90 - ishouldplayzelda (04/28/2013) [-]
i must have worded that wrong. what i meant is that the budget that actually goes into the actively defensive parts of the military are preventing what nasa is capable of. if they cut the defense budget down there would be a lot cooler space stuff going on
#107 to #102 - winglit (04/28/2013) [-]
the recent cuts of Military spending in general has caused the AF to react and allocate more of its resources towards maintaining its military strength rather than its Space program that is correct, however were it handled the other way we would've had many more layoffs in the military resulting in a higher unemployment rate than we already have, essentially adding in the collapse of our nation... say what you like about soldiers the money put into the military tends to go back around the country and aid our economy, since it supplies jobs to our citizens, and Military Contractors pay other companies to build bases and weapons it allows for business to thrive, the recent attitude of "military bad" I feel has aided in the current collapse of our nations economy, your thoughts?

Yeah, you think your first try went any better?
The first satellite of the USA was called Kaputnik.

First man made object outside the solar system
#355 to #208 - crilleballe (04/29/2013) [-]
You wanna list up all the breakthroughs in space exploration? Ok
First liquid fuel long range rocket: Germany
First jet-airplane: Nazi Germany
First object in space: Soviet
First animal in space: Soviet
First man in space: Soviet
First woman in space: Soviet
First object in orbit around the sun: Soviet (Although accidental)
First object on the moon: Soviet
First robot on the moon: Soviet
First space station: Soviet
First human on the moon: USA
First object on Mars: Soviet
First object outside the solar system: USA

And if it hadn't been for the political unstability resulting in the fall of the USSR, they would probably still be beating your ass. Oh, yeah, their bombs we're bigger than yours, too :)
User avatar #359 to #355 - fallenoffacliff (04/29/2013) [-]
First reusable spacecraft: USA
First space telescope: USA
First year in space: USSR
First man made object beyond asteroid belt: USA
First man made object to orbit Saturn: USA
First object to orbit a planet (excluding earth): USA

We did a bit more than you are giving us credit for
#362 to #359 - crilleballe (04/29/2013) [-]
First reusable spacecraft: I'll give you this one, although many scientists believe that the idea of a reusable spacecraft has cost more lives than single use crafts would have.
First space telescope: Hubble telescope, launched 1990, after the fall of the USSR. Not really an amazing feat, just 'another' satellite. A great one none the less.
First man made object beyond asteroid belt: Yup, you threw your ball a bit further than what's been done before. Not that the USSR couldn't, they just had their eyes on something else.
First man made object to orbit Saturn: Yes, you are right. First object to orbit the sun: Luna 1, first object to orbit the moon: Luna 10, first object to orbit Mars: Mars 2. First object to orbit Venus: Venera.
First object to orbit another planet: Yes, Mariner 9 was the first to orbit Mars, but as said above: First object to actually orbit something else than earth: Luna 1. You didn't invent the systems needed for orbiting planets, USSR did.
User avatar #364 to #362 - fallenoffacliff (04/29/2013) [-]
The USA independently invented obit technology (the USA and USSR didn't collaborate very often) Messenger is the first to orbit mercury, Galileo the first to orbit Jupiter, Voyager 2 the only spacecraft to directly observe both Neptune and Uranus. New horizons is on its way to Pluto. Oh, and as a side note, there is a very small chance that the first manmade object in space may have been a blast cap during operation plumbbob.

P.s. I am thoroughly enjoying learning about all of this. And I completely understand where you are coming from. Both the USA and the USSR have made monumental advances in space exploration.
#358 to #355 - killyojoy (04/29/2013) [-]
We had missles that were far more advanced the only reason Russia made their bombs so much bigger is because they were far more inaccurate then our bombs our idea was to put small nukes in tactical places while russia just wanted to blow up cities in hopes of hitting tactical places....also it looks like we still came out the winners because we are still intact, while they blew their budget before anything could even happen..
#360 to #358 - crilleballe (04/29/2013) [-]
When i say big bombs, i mean thermonuclear h-bombs. This isn't a tactical nuke, this is a 'Level the entire city of New York with the ground' bomb. There is no need for precision bombing, no matter how small of a yield you stuff in them.
The fact that you are still intact does not mean you won the space race. All along the way the Soviet Union were beating your sad asses, and simply because the soviets focused on robotics instead of humans in space, you decided that getting to the moon first with humans were the goal. Really, putting a man on the moon was pretty irrelevant. It was proof that YOU could do it, but not proof that it could be done.
"We had missles that were far more advanced" As i'm not quite sure about this, I must request a source.

By the way, in case you were wondering, that is ours.
#186 to #51 - killyojoy (04/28/2013) [-]
Getting to the moon was the finish line and Russia was just the first on the track.
#356 to #186 - crilleballe (04/29/2013) [-]
Russia (USSR) got to the moon waaay before the United States of America. They just sent robots instead of people, just like what you're doing on Mars right now.
Also, the space race was mainly military. It was a showoff between the USA and the USSR. Whomever could build spacecrafts capable of getting nuclear weapons into space would win. The real finish line would have been a combat station in space. Of course, the USSR fell before that could happen.
#221 to #186 - anonymous (04/28/2013) [-]
And who decided it was the finish line? Let me guess, Americans? You won nothing, you just told you won it because you're big babies.
#268 to #221 - killyojoy (04/28/2013) [-]
Well NASA was formed and now the is only one Car on the track so it's not exactly a race.

Not to mention that there are plenty of other "objects"
If you're going to be wrong, at least try to not be stupid.
User avatar #262 to #253 - dildoes (04/28/2013) [-]
Well, not exactly. If space is everywhere, then the earth, along with its atmosphere is inside of space. And obviously, within the atmosphere and the earth, there are plenty of objects.
#326 to #262 - anonymous (04/28/2013) [-]
But those wern't manmade.

would you look at that, no one has ever been to the moon!
Go there in the 60s, up until recently we didnt even have the technology to reach another planet let alone send people there.
everything about the footage that supposedl was shot on the moon is pure ******** .
if it where possible to go there, WHY THE **** did no one lese go to the moon for half a century?
Rich companies offer 0-G flights where they go close to outer space.. if it where possible to go to the moon dont you think that there would be conpanies keen on getting there and make a fortune with the retards that wanna go.
