The idiomatic usage derives from the second-generation of jet fighters, armed with guided missiles, in the late s into the s, with the informal military sense of fully-powered non-ballistic missiles going ballistic when losing control and assuming a free-fall trajectory, sense in subsequent usage the term has often become associated with the intentionally.

The basic Redstone missile for which the stand was a major test site had its origin in when the Ordnance Guided Missile Center began study of a mile-range rocket. The Redstone medium range ballistic missile that evolved from a five-year research and development program was 70 inches in diameter and 69 feet long.

A missile is an object that can be projected toward a target. Examples include a spitball shot through a straw, a poison-tipped arrow sent via bow, or a self-propelled heat-seeking rocket, designed to take out targets at long range.The Player-Guided Missile is any Video Game projectile attack or weapon which the player can manually steer or guide toward their desired target using their player movement controls.

These can be more dangerous than ordinary homing missiles (at least in the hands of a skilled player), although they do mean that while the player is busy piloting.Gaining national attention at that time was a gutsy group that seemed to be making great strides in rocketry.
