Wernher Von Braun Autograph

Received 11/16/1967.  Dr. Wernher von Braun, one of the fathers of rocket science, probably second to Robert H. Goddard in that respect.

I tried writing a small post that addresses the fact that his life — especially before he came to the US — is rather controversial without getting caught up in it, but I don’t think that is truly possible. If you want to know more, just look him up in Wikipedia.

In a completely different vein, here is a humorous take on what it’s like to meet a brain surgeon or rocket scientist at a party.

 

UPDATE: For some reason this single post has become a spam magnet so i turned off further commenting.

  1. A NICE AUTOGRAPH IS IT FOR SALE? OR TRADE OF THE GERMAN HIGH COMMAND DURING W W II?

      Hi Richie. Thanks. We are holding on to the entire collection for now.

    • Hate to tell you that signature was done by autopen, not in his hand.

      • Mark Garbowski says

        Yeah, you seem really broken up by it.
        But you might be right. I know a lot of NASA and space program people used them. It does look like some autopen samples of his I found on the web, but he also had one of the more consistent autographs in his real hand.
        I also had meant to add an autopen disclaimer to the website. I thought I had already done so this is a useful reminder to add it this weekend.

  2. Thankfulness to my father who told me concerning this web site, this weblog is truly
    awesome.
