See how Werner von Braun heralded the birth of ballistic missiles and laid foundations for the space race.

The first ever long-range rockets were designed and built by the Nazis in a network of top-secret research labs, underground silos and hi-tech launch pads. Go behind the scenes into the secret labs to see von Braun and his team devise the world's first long-range missile whose design inspired all modern rockets, including those used in U.S. and former USSR space programs.
