    NASA doesn't have rockets, the US buys rocket engines from Russia because the US does not make them.

    i remember the story. rocket boosters, i believe 70 of them, preserved and wrapped up by a diligent engineer. instead of destroying them as ordered by the ZK. and still sold to the USA. They,like anything else they consider important or useful ( Aluminium,Titan...) are NOT included in their -sanctions list-.
