Redstone and Jupiter flight phases of Project Mercury. During the course of the meeting the following points became firm: 1 Space Task Group was the overall manager and technical director of this phase of the program, 2 ABMA was responsible for the launch vehicle until spacecraft separation, 3 ABMA was responsible for the Redstone launch vehicle recovery this phase of the program was later eliminated since benefits from recovering the launch vehicle would have been insignificant , 4 Space Task Group was responsible for the spacecraft flight after separation, 5 McDonnell was responsible for the adapters for the Mercury-Redstone configuration, and 6 ABMA would build adapters for the Mercury-Jupiter configuration.

Because many points could only be settled by detailed design studies, it was decided to establish several working panels for later meetings. Army task force to plan a manned lunar outpost -.

It was only men who had a passion for rocket flight Others had more heavenly goals On the other hand, German Army Ordinance in the late s and early s was thinking of a modern long-range cannon-type device which could propel an artillery shell for 50, 60 miles and more Army Ordinance had had one ultra long-range cannon during the last few years of World War One which could launch a shell up to fifty miles distance.

This ultra long range gun was known as the Paris Cannon Pariskanone and was destroyed post-war as spelled out in the Treaty of Versailles. They were not allowed tanks and its artillery was limited to cannon no larger than mm which was no more than light artillery.

German legacy in the Soviet rocketry

Yet, by the late s many of the high-ranking Army Ordinance officers were men who had once been assigned to the ultra long-range cannon such as the Paris Cannon as young officers during the Great War. Now, as high-ranking officers, they were looking for modern day versions of a big gun. According to Dornberger :. I had been a heavy gunner. It could fire a 8. My idea of a first big rocket was something that would send a ton 2, pounds of high explosive over miles In the late s, Army Ordinance was seriously thinking of how they might hurl up to 2, pounds of high explosive at an enemy city one hundred sixty miles distant.

Could such a heavy shell be propelled by some form of a rocket once it left its cannon barrel to give it the ultra range desired? Or, for example, could 2, pounds of high explosives be placed in the nose of a rocket and launched against an enemy city? It seemed a do-able proposition. In the late s movie maker Fritz Lang was demonstrating how people, riding in the nose of a rocket, could be landed on the Moon. General Becker and Oberst Dornberger believed that it should be possible to substitute the people for 2, pounds of high explosives and launch it not to the Moon, as Fritz Lang had successfully demonstrated in his movie, but at cities or more miles away?

It would be the marriage of these two interests, amateur rocketeers and Army Ordinance, into a singular goal-minded pursuit of researching and developing a rocket capable of carry 2, pounds of explosives to cities filled with enemy citizens. Rocket development became a closed subject Their goal, according to Walter Dornberger , was to turn the rocket into a practical weapon of war.

To learn the basic principles of liquid fuel rockets Army Ordinance in issued a contract with Dr. Paul Heylandt owner of the Paul Heylandt Chemical Werk of Berlin-Brietz to design and construct a bi-fuel liquid rocket motor of [20 kilograms] thrust. Walter Riedel of Heylandt had designed and built rocket motors for the late daredevil Max Valier between and which had powered his experimental autos, ice sleds, even rocket-powered railroad sleds.

  • The rocketeers experienced set backs and accidents. Chemist Dr. Wahmke and two of his assistants would die in March when a bi-fuel liquid rocket motor exploded as they were seeking to premix alcohol with hydrogen peroxide. Three rocket test stands were constructed at Kummersdorf with monies provided by General Becker. It was known as the A-1 and it weighed pounds [ kilograms].

    It was followed by the A-2 which was designed to produce 2, pounds [1, kilograms] of thrust. Following the A-1 and A-2 rocket missiles, Walter Dornberger wrote a report outlining how rockets could be utilized in military roles. These applications included:. They had outgrown the facilities. But thanks to Generaloberst von Fritsch , the rocketeers had been promised in , an entirely new rocket experimental facility in a remote area of northern Germany.
