The Peenemünde Military Test Site was one of the most modern technological facilities in the world in the years between 1936 and 1945. The first launch of a missile into space took place here in October 1942. In the nearby air force testing area, rocket engineers tested numerous flight objects equipped with revolutionary technology. From the start this research was directed toward one goal only: achieving military superiority through advanced technology. Here you can see the work of Wernher von Braun who later masterminded the American Space Program at NASA – and the RAF Bomber Commands attempt to destroy it.
