@readsteven WUT? That is amazing. How did we never hear about this? One of these days I'm going to have to find a good biography for von Braun.
@tsturm Right! I had thought, If you wanted to make a docu-series about von Braun, that paragraph is episode one—he was only 16!
Then I read Wikipedia, found out when he was 12, he tried to make a rocket car and, "caused a major disruption in a crowded street by detonating a toy wagon to which he had attached fireworks."
I think he might have been part Kerbal.
