The Launch Explorer 1 was carried into orbit by a Jupiter-C rocket, launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida, at 10:48 p.m. (EST) on Jan. 31, 1958.The rocket, developed at the Army Ballistic Missile Agency in Alabama, under the direction of Wernher von Braun, was a modified version of the Redstone ballistic missile, topped by three solid-propellant upper stages Von Braun's greatest achievement at NASA, and arguable as a whole, was his contribution to the Saturn Project, which ultimately developed the Saturn V. Saturn V was the first and, to this day, only spacecraft that has achieved lunar contact. To date, the Saturn V remains the most capable launch system ever put into operation in terms of range.

As envisioned by Wernher von Braun, the booster was to be a three stage vehicle standing 265 foot tall By Bob Ward Rocket scientist Wernher von Braun remains a controversial figure. Even today, thirty-six years since his retirement from NASA and almost twenty-nine years after he departed planet Earth at the age of just sixty-five, the German-born engineer and physicist—and one-time enemy of the United States and its allies—still stands as an intriguing, dynamic, complex human being
Von Braun: Dreamer of Space, Engineer of War is based on Canadian author Michael J Neufeld's biography of Von Braun, a man who became an American hero and was also one of the most controversial people ever to join NASA. The German V-2 rocket builder joined NASA after the Second World War, in a complex, often uncomfortable alliance that. After WW2 and before NASA, Von Braun worked for US Army.

At this point an engineer who had been part of the pre-launch team called Von Braun and arranged to visit his office. He told Von Braun that during the pre-launch checks he had drawn a spark while tightening a contact with a screwdriver. The system had performed well in ground tests after the spark, so he thought nothing of the incident In The 1950s Nazi Rocketeer Wernher von Braun Wanted To Build NASA A Gas Chamber In Space . Wernher von Braun was the Nazi rocketeer who led NASA's space program. A member of the SS, Von Braun was a mere tool of the Third Reich, a brilliant scientist caught up in unfortunate times. Well, so the whitewashing went Wernher Magnus Maximilian von Braun was born to Baron Magnus von Braun and Emmy von Quistorp on March 23, 1912, in Wirsitz, a town in the eastern German province of Posen.

And while von Braun's legacy of being a rocket pioneer in which he helped humans set foot on the Moon, his World War II activities can't be ignored. In their biography of von Braun's life, NASA frames his work before and during World War II this way. In late 1932 he (von Braun) went to work for the German army to develop liquid-fuel. The von Braun team worked for the Army Ballistic Missile Agency until they were assigned to NASA. Thor, Atlas and Titan were Air Force projects. This does not discount the possibility that the von Braun team were asked for assistance on the Air Force projects but I'm sure there was inter-service rivalry at play to some degree $\begingroup$ The title of your question does not match the comment from which it was taken. Did Wernher von Braun really have a Saturn V painted as the V2? vs von Braun btw also had Saturn V painted as the V2.. Your title implies that von Braun had 1 special Saturn V painted to replicate the V2, whereas the actual comment states that Saturn V (collectively) were painted like V2s.
