This is what chicken hitting an engine looks like. The engine effectively explodes. The engine gets a "passing" grade in such a test as long as the blades flying out of the explosion are contained by the enclosure and don't immediately destroy the rest of the plane. If you think this is a minor event, you're deluding yourself.

You'd say that if you knew nothing of the early American space program. Of course, having demonstrated no knowledge of that history your opinion on the matter is pretty much worthless.

Perhaps you know of some secret space plane that went into orbit before Apollo, but this would be news for the rest of the world. So cite or STFU.
