The Nazi's, led by Adolf Hitler were one of the most notorious and brutal regimes of all time. But they're also famous for a fair amount of science and the mystic that surrounds them.
This episode wade's into the Nazi plans for space during WW2. A Nazi Death Star, a futuristic bomber, and the first man made object to enter space, the V2 rocket.
The Nazis were defeated but their science lived on (directly) in the USA and Russia and the space race, and their influence can still be seen on the spacecraft today, and was left behind on the moon by Apollo astronauts.
Mentioned in the episode is an engineering document by Eugene Saenger in regards to the SilverVogel.... here it is http://www.astronautix.com/data/saenger.pdf
