Wernher von Braun: Scientist, Rocketman, Dreamer
The story of a German man who loved to build rockets, even as a young boy. After World War II, he surrendered to U.S. Forces and came to America where he built rockets and, eventually, put the first man on the moon. He built that rocket to the moon in a town called Hunstville, Alabama that – because of Wernher Von Braun, -- later became known all over the world as Rocket City, U.S.A.
