82,406. Wernher von Braun was an SS Officer and rocket scientist. His team at Peenemunde designed the first cruise missile – the VI doodlebug. The V2 rocket was the forerunner to the Saturn V rocket which would supposedly take man to the moon. At the end of World War II the American government were desperate to get hold of the Nazi rocket weapons which had wrought havoc on the innocent people of Britain. The American government launched Project Paperclip which secretly changed the war criminal files on Werner von Braun and his colleagues. Files which described these SS officers as an ardent Nazi were changed to read not an ardent Nazi. (NASA & Odessa File & Rocket & Nazis: Von Braun) Chris Everard, Secret Space
3,840. NASA could not risk the public humiliation of having brave astronauts crashing to their deaths on the lunar surface broadcast on live TV. NASA’s Nazis knew that a major catastrophic failure on the moon would cause the billions of dollars of funding to be immediately cut. Anyone with the most elementary grasp of science could tell that the Saturn V rockets were merely big versions of the Nazi’s V2 killing machines. (Moon Landing Conspiracy & NASA & Rocket) ibid.

3,098. The human race has constantly endeavoured to extend its reach, and now it’s heading for the final frontier. From an outpost on the moon to a fully fledged colony on Mars. We’re building the rockets that will transport us there. And the machines we’ll need to survive. (Space & Rocket & Exploration & Universe) The Universe s2e13: Colonising Space, 2008

3,773. That day more than a rocket went up in smoke. (Moon & Rocket) ibid.
3,823. Kaysing observed that despite the clarity of deep space the stars were missing from the black lunar sky. He saw the American flag waving, even though there is no air on the moon. And he discovered that there was no blast-crater beneath the lunar lander where its powerful rocket engine had fired. (Moon & Rocket) Conspiracy Theory: Moon Landing Hoax aka Did We Land on the Moon?
3,824. According to Kaysing, the launch of Apollo Saturn 5 rocket was real, it just never sent astronauts to the moon. (Moon & Rocket & Astronaut) ibid.
3,836. During Project Apollo six highly complex manned craft landed on the moon, took off and returned to Earth. An 86% success rate. Since Project Apollo twenty-five simple unmanned craft have attempted to fulfil their missions to Mars. Only seven succeeded. A mere 28% success rate. (Moon Landing Conspiracy & Rocket) What Happened on the Moon?
3,851. How would it be possible to hear astronaut’s voices against the background of a running rocket engine? (Moon Landing Conspiracy & Astronaut & Rocket) Bill Kaysing
3,853. In the footage of the ascent stage going up, what you don’t see is an exhaust plume coming out of the rocket engine nozzle. But what do we see? We see the ascent stage suddenly pop up without any exhaust plume whatsoever, as though it were jerked by a cable. (Moon Landing Conspiracy & Rocket) Bill Kaysing
3,886. It was Wernher von Braun who first realised the race to the moon must be entertaining. A show. After several meetings with Walt Disney an idea took shape. Only Hollywood, the dream factory itself, could transform a dull rocket launch that no-one took any notice of into a mega-production. And Stanley Kubrick was about to convince the last doubters. The famous director, working closely with NASA, had started to shoot 2001 A Space Odyssey. (Moon Landing Conspiracy & NASA & Hollywood & Rocket & Mockumentaries & Nazis: Von Braun) Dark Side of the Moon, 2002
8,600. The brute force of rockets ... But are manned space flights really a recent phenomenon? Or could our ancient ancestors have witnessed similar events? (Aliens & Ancient Astronaut Theory & Flight & Rocket) Ancient Aliens: Alien Tech s2e6
8,601. Could early man really have known about rocket technology? (Aliens & Ancient Alien Theory & Flight & Rocket) ibid.

26,773. The rocket had been designed at the cutting edge of technology. Its gyroscopic guidance system was far in advance of anything in the allied armoury and the electric tort, which drive the motors, was the smallest of its kind. But each V2 cost twenty times more than the V1 for just one ton of explosives. (World War II & Rocket & Bomb & England) ibid.
26,774. Captured V weapons were displayed in Trafalgar Square. (World War II & Rocket & Bomb & England & London) ibid.
26,775. The real winner in the story of the V weapons may have been Wernher von Braun. He surrendered to the Americans with his entire research team. (World War II & Rocket & Bomb & Odessa File & Nazis: Von Braun) ibid.
26,847. The Germans would fire over 9,500 V1s at southern England during the summer of 1944. (World War II & Bombs & Rockets) Stephen Fry, Who Betrayed the Bombers Boys? Yesterday 2013

27,230. We present the first footage of the V-2 missile on its flight to England. For reasons of secrecy it has been filmed from a long distance and offers only a vague idea of the real dimensions of the V-2. (Nazis & Rocket & Bomb) National Socialist propaganda film 1944
27,269. It was one of the largest projects in the history of mankind. The Third Reich’s bomb-proof factory ... Gigantic underground plants would have kept the supply chain running for the Wehrmacht. Armaments minister Albert Speer had devised the monstrous plan for his Führer. Today only a few may set foot in the remnants of the mammoth project. Hundreds of thousands of slave-labourers hollowed out entire mountains essential to the war effort. (Nazis & Bomb & Rockets) The Reich Underground: Terror From Below
