Exclamation Re: The Space Shuttle and the ISS are a Hoax!

Stompk proposes that if the thrust of a rocket engine produces forward force by pushing against air, how does a shuttle move around in an environment without any air?
A rocket generates thrust not by pushing against air, but by explosivly ejecting gas generated by burning the fuel.

The shuttle moves in space via the use of gas releasing jets that produce the required force, and by burning the RSS engines to accelerate.
