Yes the above axiom is absolutely true.There are several examples of it,mentioned in 'Vaishvaanar Tantra','Dhoom Prakarana',' Shakti Sutra','Vayu Tattva Prakarana','Anshunabha Tantra','Aakash Shaastra' and so on.Sage Narada used to keep on moving in space very often,which indicates he had a good knowledge of space science.There is another example of King Raivatak who went to Brahma(the Creator) to seek advice for his daughter's marriage.When the King left to meet Brahma,it was the Treta age,but when he reached back earth the new age Dwaapar had already begun.This resembles to the modern science theory of Time Dilution.
Prehistoric Flying Machines called Vimana* Ancient Sanskrit text dating as far back as far as 6,000 B.C describe, in varying but vivid detail, flying machines called Vimanas.
"The Sifrala which originated in the Chaldean area and time comprises around 100 written pages of technical plans on building a flying machine. Some of the Vedic Texts, which go back to the dawn of writing, give descriptions of air battles and a preemptive nuclear strike. The Hindu Vedas are the oldest of all the texts from the Indus Valley, and they give a clear picture of vimanas (the Vedic name for these flying machines). The Mahabharata also includes a section on vimanas. The Ramayana speaks of aircraft hangers. Vedic texts declare that there were various kinds of aircraft."
“Vimanas are airplanes and they are powered by some jet engines. This seems to be true because all the description of the flight behavior. Elephants ran away in panic. Grass was thrown out because there was a lot of pressure from behind the vimanas. So we can say this is a description of the spaceship"
