Not sure who's trying to prove what here, but conservation of momentum applies to solids, liquids, gases, plasmas ... every state of matter. Total momentum is conserved unless an external net force is applied. That's why rockets work.

There are five known phases, or states, of matter: solids, liquids, gases, plasma and Bose-Einstein condensates.

Plasma was questioned up to about 100 years ago, but became official in the last 15 or 20 years.

THE vacuum analogy is flawed.
The external vacuum applies force to the pipe, which is relieved by the vent, which transfers the force to external air, which is then pulled through the pipe.
Close the vent and the pipe collapses.

In a rocket, fuel is burned, creating hot gases which are forced out the rear. The gases exert an equal force in the opposite direction, upon the rocket. [Newton's Third Law]
The internal force applied to the rocket is Thrust.
Applying impulse-momentum theory, derived from Newton's Second Law, the factors that determine thrust can be identified.

This is integration of concepts of Conservation of Linear Momentum and Conservation of Energy.

Ok. The pipe TENDS to collapse due to external atmospheric pressure. Happy? The vacuum FORCE is created by the MOTOR of the vacuum that you attached to the pipe. It actually exerts force on the gases within the pipe, but I simplified the explanation for the simple minded. Apparently you still didn't get it. The force on the gases within the pipe is transferred to gases OUTSIDE the pipe.

In a rocket, all the forces are INTERNAL. A force, created by burning the fuel pushes the gas away. The gas pushes back because it has mass.

Chemical rocket thrust does not work in the vacuum of space.
Near the Earth, rocket thrust pushes against the atmosphere around the rocket.
In space, rocket thrust pushes against NOTHING.

If Chemical rockets can push against nothing, you should
be able to fly if you pull hard enough on your shoe laces.

No computer or maybe ALL the computers in the world
working together can not resolve a 3 body space problem.

All bodies in the conventionally accepted space model are claimed to be
moving through the universe between 800,000 mph to 2.2 million mph.
No body knows the exact speeds so nobody can calculate the movement
of a third body to go from on moving mass to another moving mass.

Your problem is that you're thinking of force.

F = ma is what Newton said. So one could conclude that with no external force, there's no acceleration. But he was wrong in the case of masses that change. That conclusion would be wrong.

Actually it's

F = dp/dt = ma + v dm/dt

so with no external force, momentum is conserved. And that's why rockets work. Because of the nonzero v dm/dt term.

Re: NASA Thrust Equation gets destroyed.
Chemical rocket thrust does not work in the vacuum of space.
Near the Earth, rocket thrust pushes against the atmosphere around the rocket.
In space, rocket thrust pushes against NOTHING.

If Chemical rockets can push against nothing, you should
be able to fly if you pull hard enough on your shoe laces.

No computer or maybe ALL the computers in the world
working together can not resolve a 3 body space problem.

All bodies in the conventionally accepted space model are claimed to be
moving through the universe between 800,000 mph to 2.2 million mph.
No body knows the exact speeds so nobody can calculate the movement
of a third body to go from on moving mass to another moving mass.

I do not KNOW the nature of those lights in the sky.
People through mass indoctrination ASSUME that the lights are
satellites created and launched by man.

This is simply wrong. You can easily test it on earth. Vacuum chambers are easy to create and chemical rockets absolutely DO work in the vacuum.
