Unraveling The Nazi Origins Of The American Space Program
The following excerpt is adapted and condensed from Jonathan Fetter-Vorm’s “Moonbound: Apollo 11 and the Dream of Spaceflight.” The graphic novel commemorates the fiftieth anniversary of the man landing, conjuring “the long history of the visionaries, star-gazers, builders, and adventurers who sent Apollo 11 on its legendary voyage.”

As we celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of Man's first landing on another world, let's not forget how we got there.

What an exhibition of charming naivete.  Science does not concern itself with moral issues.  Scientists must remain detached from moral judgments to achieve objectivity; there isn't any place for biases (including moral biases) in science.

So the scientist should ignore slavery and murder, as long as it advances science?

So it would have been much better to let the Russians have them.  I am sure our history would have turned out much differently then; and probably not for the better.

Why do you think that?

The Russians did get a number of German scientists after the war as well including those in the rocketry and atomic weapons research.
