Missiles & Space

    The United States Space Program began in World War II when the Germans developed the V-1 and V-2 rockets.  After the war, the US army brought the rocket scientist and engineers and their rockets to the United States.  The V-2 became the army Redstone.  The Cold War resulted in the development of the Atlas and Titan missiles, which were later used for space research.  The Shuttle is America's reusable space vehicle.
    But the National Aeronautics and Space Administration does not sit on its laurels.  Now in development is the Venture Star, a replacement for the shuttle and a shuttle escape vehicle.  Also in this section, we have presented several aircraft flown by NASA.
