Example text

The Navy was very skeptical of the use of dangerous liquid fuels on ships, and a study called Operation Pushover in 1949 convinced the Navy that the risk of accidents was too great. The Navy showed no serious interest in ballistic missiles until solid-fuel propulsion proved practical, and only began its Polaris program in late 1956. While the absorption of German missile expertise gave the United States a first step into missile technology in the late 1940s, it had less effect on military programs than on later space programs.
