  •  NAZIS IN SPACE 1st (0+ / 0-)

    Did anyone here know that the Nazis beat everyone into space ? The V-2 rocket was the 1st manned made objects too leave the atmosphere on there way to killing civilians. It's rumored that Von Braun even had an idea to put Nazis satellites up in the late 40's and then manned missions. All this stuff was built by slave labor. Helluva way too start our exploration of space wasn't it?

      part of the history of space.  You can make similar comments about the history of medicine as well.  

      BTW, you are thinking of the A11and A12

        I didn't mean too say space flight was a bad thing just because bad people got there first. It's kind of interesting though that it took us so long too get our own satellites up there. Had the Russians not sent sputnik up we might still be trying to do it.
