The intrepid imagination of RCH at work again: on 8-21 CTC 4 hr. appearance he

Evidently Explorer I had a 30% higher orbit than could be explained by rocket science of the day. RCH hypothesizes that a "cover up" took place whereby von Braun figured out that "antigravity" was responsible for this; and took steps to secretly correspond with top physicists of 1958-60 period.
Any alternative explanations
