Wernher von Braun was the head of the German rocketry program during and after World War II.
Originally working on a doctorate in physics when the Nazi Party took power in Germany, he was soon recruited by the German Armed Forces to develop rockets at a secret testing facility at Peenemünde, being granted the rank of SS-Sturmbannführer. His work helped to create the V-2 Rocket.
In The New Order
Though von Braun died in 1954, his work paved the way for the development of the Nazi space program, which lead to the building of Moon Base One. A statue of him, holding a V-2 rocket, stands in the parking lot of the London Nautica, a gold plaque memorializing him.
