  • VON BRAUN, WERNHER

    (English) Original drawing, “3rd Stage Satellite Vehicle …” signed and dated 1952. [Huntsville, Alabama, 1952.]

    his is an original signed drawing of a space ship by Wernher von Braun, the father of the American space program. He made this drawing for his landmark Colliers series “Man Will Conquer Space Soon” (1952-54), which played a central role in inspiring a generation of rocket scientists and convincing the public of the possibility of space exploration. These essays covered seemingly every aspect of manned space flight and anticipated many developments including the enormous multi-stage vertical launch vehicle (to become Saturn V), a horizontal landing space ferry (the Space Shuttle), an orbiting space station, a lunar landing, the establishment of a base on the moon, and ultimately a manned expedition to Mars.

    (English) Autograph manuscript diagrams and text. [n.p., n.d.],

Goddard had a rare genius for invention and these notes suggest the endless refinement necessary to create a dependable, operational rocket engine.
