A German rocket scientist

Invented the V2 Rocket and later many more rockets

Became a rocket scientist for the U.S. as an architect of the Saturn V launch vehicle

development of t he r ocket
Development Of The Rocket
  • The rockets final development and manufacturing was finished on March 16 1942.
  • The rocket was developed to be a super weapon for the German military
  • Von Braun was head of the team that developed the rocket
  • The development took place in Kummersdorf where they successfully launched two rockets
  • Development continued at the Peenemünde facility, which contained the parts essential for the continuous development of the rocket
rocket s launch
Rocket’s Launch

The first successful flight was on October 1,1942 in Peenemünde

After the first launch Von Braun is quoted saying ” This third day of October, 1942, is the first of a new era of transportation, that of space travel”

technical details of the rocket
Technical Details Of The Rocket

The rocket uses a combustion burner engine that burns at 2500–2700 °C to fly

The rocket is power by a mixture of water and ethanol for fuel the is uses and uses liquid oxygen for the oxidizer in the rocket.

A PIGA accelerator was the system that controlled the engine shutoff

Vertical and horizontal gyroscopes were part of the LEV-3 guidance system that controlled lateral stabilization

Four external rudders were placed on the tail fins and internal graphite vanes near the exit of the motor

One tail fin was always aligned with the target azimuth before flight and the rocket was designed with a flight curve that was parabolic.

usage
Usage
  • The rocket was used for research and development after WWII for future rocket and missile designs
  • The V2 rocket was used to take the first photo from space

The rocket was used as a long range weapon for the German military in WWII

After the first rocket landed in London Von Braun said” The rocket worked perfectly, except for landing on the wrong planet.”

The weapon was later captured by the allies and used by them for testing

technological advancement
Technological Advancement
  • The rocket was also responsible for the rocket designs that would be cold war and modern ICBM’s

The rocket’s design later lead to the designs that were used for the aircraft that landed men on the moon

The scientist responsible for the rocket later would work for N.A.S.A. on spacecraft

The rocket was also responsible for the rocket designs that would be cold war and modern ICBM’s
