This is funny,

Your example team of people doesn't know aeronautics, get someone that does.
What's so hard to understand about cryo based rocketry anyway? It's just a
bunch of math ...

A guess, I know astronautics is very popular with young people from my
research. I think the nihilsm that you are picking up means you are reading
up on the subject from people who don't know how to do it. If someone
managed this is the 60s then therefore it *must* be possible and anyone who
tells you that it is not possible may not be a suitable science and
engineering contractor for this job.

Anyway thanks for making me laugh out loud for once!
