Wernher von Braun, the “Father of Rocket Science,” is quoted in 1953:
Wernher von Braun, the “Father of Rocket Science,” is quoted in 1953:
“It is commonly believed that man will fly directly from the earth to the moon, but to do this, we would require a vehicle of such gigantic proportions that it would prove an economic impossibility. It would have to develop sufficient speed to penetrate the atmosphere and overcome the earth’s gravity and, having traveled all the way to the moon, it must still have enough fuel to land safely and make the return trip to earth. Furthermore, in order to give the expedition a margin of safety, we would not use one ship alone, but a minimum of three … each rocket ship would be taller than New York’s Empire State Building [almost ¼ mile high] and weigh about ten times the tonnage of the Queen Mary, or some 800,000 tons.”
“Conquest of the Moon” by Wernher Von Braun, published in 1953 by Viking Press


NOTE: The Saturn 5 Rocket that “allegedly” went to the moon weighed a TOTAL of 3000 tons. So do the math!!

Wernher von Braun thought he was visited in dreams as a child and even around the year 1900 said that Mankind would visit the moon in his lifetime. How would he know

Apollo Guidance Computer

Astronauts communicated with the AGC using a numeric display and keyboard called the DSKY (for "display and keyboard", pronounced "DIS-kee"). The AGC and its DSKY user interface were developed in the early 1960s for the Apollo program by the MIT Instrumentation Laboratory and first flew in 1966.[4] The AGC was the first computer based on silicon integrated circuits

Got a link for those requirements?

There were no requirements in 1953, Von Braun was making an off-the-cuff estimate.

This is a prime example of the straws that FE clings to.
