This year is a huge one for fans of “the rocket man” Wernher von Braun, who will mark the 100th anniversary of his birth on March 23 in both Berlin and at NASA Headquarters later this year; while 2012 also marks other significant anniversaries for this German-born American rocket scientist and “space architect” who served both Adolf Hitler and American presidents with his unique ability to develop rocket technology. In turn, this rocket technology today allows those nations with nuclear weapon war-heads on the tips of rockets to threaten man’s existence on Earth.
