Man tries to jump the mile-wide St.

Man tries to jump the mile-wide St. Lawrence River in a rocket-powered Lincoln Continental. I don’t want to spoil the result for you, but the concepts of gravity, force, and aerodynamics are fairly well established and understood, so why did anyone involved ever think that this jump was even close to possible?
