    this thing actually happened to there is no question that these things happened You could read into trajectories of light and this doesn t look right and it could all have been done on a Hollywood set and people will come up with these conspiracy theories as they often do MJ Another controversial point it would be remiss of me not to mention is of course Operation Paperclip and the involvement of Nazi scientists and former SS members in NASA s space programme At the end of WW2 there was a race between the Americans and the Soviets to capture and enlist Nazi scientists in order to gain a military edge over each other Consequently some strange collaborations ensued some of which we know about such as Project MK Ultra Project Bluebird and Project Chatter but probably many that to this day we do not The most benign of these collaborations was probably the Apollo programme but were you able to find out any more information that helps shed more light on this partnership SP I ve always had an interest in history and WW2 is close to my time I was born 12 years after it ended One of the questions I asked a lot of people who were involved in NASA like Christopher Kraft and the older people within it Max Faget as well was about people like Wernher von Braun They had dealings with him yet they weren t judging him on the fact slave labour in Eastern Europe killed millions in order to send V2 and V1 rockets to Britain They were judging him as a scientist and what he was technically capable of What they and the American government at the time were interesting in was getting the brightest minds to work on space travel well atomic power first and foremost they were about harnessing these brains for war games not space games So what came back from the people I spoke to about the German scientists and there were many of them I think there was a base in New Mexico was great respect because without them this would not have happened Without Wernher von Braun without the research he originally did at Pennemünde on the German Baltic coast during the second world war there was no way man would have walked on the moon It wouldn t have happened So their recollections of him were respectful but there was also a humorous side which all of them spoke about that the Germans had these renowned drinking parties that used to go on for days at this station I got the impression they were very closed German affairs but every now and then they would have a big party with all of the directors and technicians from Houston you know there would be some reason that Wernher von Braun and the others would be in Houston usually for a lift off and it was accompanied with a big piss up They were renowned drinkers
