Indiana Jones and the dial of fate Inspired by the real life of Nazi scientist, Werner von Braun, a controversial figure who played a major role in space travel missions after World War II ended. Werner, who was a member of the Nazi party, developed the world’s first V-2 long-range ballistic missile.
Von Braun became a controversial figure because he worked for the Nazis, although some believe that he only worked for the Nazis to further his research. He realized that his rocket program for the Nazis was aided by forced laborers drawn from concentration camps and he did not care about the suffering caused by his work developing his rockets.
After World War II ended, many German scientists were brought to American soil and then put to work for American government programs. Werner von Braun and his comrades surrendered to US forces towards the end of the war and began participating in space travel.
He became the lead mission architect for the Saturn V rocket that made human missions to the moon possible. After the successful Apollo 11 mission in 1969, Braun left NASA and worked for the aerospace company Fairchild Industries. The former Nazi SS officer died in 1977 of colon cancer at the age of 65.
Werner von Braun is considered the father of space travel and perhaps without him the United States would not have won the race to the moon from the then Soviet Union. Although there is a lot of controversy around it.
