Rockets are just projectile delivery devices. With the demonstrated capabilities of UFOs, escape velocity is an irrelevant term. If a UFO can hover indefinitely without the use of the atmosphere as a medium to push against (i.e. a helicopter), then a UFO could basically just float into space at any leisurely pace it so desired. Then, once there, accelerate to any speed it wishes to, or continue to hover. It would never be in orbit, unless it wanted to. This will be the great benefit to us if we ever can develop artificial gravitational field propulsion, or anti-gravity.
