Awesome short video by Mark Felton about Nazi Germany‘s rocket technology, targeting (beyond UK) America (which fortunately failed) through space. Wernher von Braun „ironically“ was working for NASA after the end of WW2, making USA being the first nation to put a man on the moon. https://youtu.be/1AQIyXV5nGI

aerospaceage:

1945-1952 - Space Station by Wernher von Braun - Von Braun was a leading aerospace engineer first in Germany until 1945, and after being captued by U.S. forces in the same year, he continued working for NASA in U.S. He made United States able to develop the Saturn/Apollo program, making humans landing on the moon. The pictures here by NASA show one of Wernher von Braun’s fantastic plans, designing a space station for humans. NASA said that “(Wernher von Braun is) without any doubt the greatest rocket scientist in history”. For further details on the space station, please study the following link, adding a lot of details to this concept: http://www.astronautix.com/craft/vonation.htm. The following quote is as well from that website: “In the first 1946 summary of his work during World War II, Wernher von Braun prophesied the construction of space stations in orbit. The design, a toroidal station spun to provide artificial gravity, would be made very familiar to the American public over the next six years. The design was elaborated at the First Symposium on Space Flight on 12 October 1951 at the Hayden Planetarium in New York City. The design was popularized in the series in Colliers magazine, illustrated with gorgeous Chesley Bonestell painting, in 1952. The 1946 version used 20 cylindrical sections, each about 3 m in diameter and 8 m long, to make up the toroid. The whole station was about 50 m in diameter and guy wires connecting and positioning the toroid to the 8 m-diameter central power module. This was equipped with a sun-following solar collector dish to heat fluid in a ball-shaped device. The heated fluid would run an electrical generator. Presumably visiting spacecraft would dock or transfer crew at the base of the power module.”

The Moon Landing Scene of “First Man”. A fantastic movie by Steven Spielberg from 2018. The movie tries to give a holistic view how mankind successfully made it to the moon in the 60th. But other than history, Spielberg ensured that no involvement of German scientists like Wernher von Braun was part in the movie, even though former Nazi scientists were the crucial factor of the successful American space race.
