Wernher von Braun’s office in Alabama (1965)
Wernher von Braun (1912-1977), director of NASA’s MarchallSpace Flight Center, at his office in Huntsville, Alabama. On a shelf behind is a row of his rocket models. You also can see the first rocket in history which reached space which is the V2/A4 rocket (second on the left).

One of the first snaps of our planet from space

Taken from a captured German V2 rocket fired into the edge of space from the White Sands testing station in New Mexico by Werner von Braun and the US military rocketry research group, this photo seems a bit grainy compared to the current lush photos from the space station or high res satellites such as PLEIADES and Digital Globe. It remains however a historic piece, and a direct ancestor of so many of the photos we share and comment on here on TES, so I felt it had to be acknowledged as the original source of much rich enjoyment.

July 24, 1950 - RTV-G-4 Bumper 8 launches at Cape Canaveral, the first launch from what was to become the United States’ premier space port and launch site for space exploration vessels and military ICBMs.

The Bumper program was developed in 1947, for the US to investigate techniques of launching and separating two-stage rockets and gain knowledge missile behavior at high-altitude and high-speed flight. The Bumper rockets were a modified WAC Corporal sounding rocket and German V2, brought over at the end of WWII with Wernher von Braun and his team. Eight Bumper rockets would be launched in total, the first six at White Sands Proving Grounds.
