How incredible is this, along with some of the other technology it just shows how close we came to losing in WW2. They were an evil regime but their technology cannot be gainsaid.

Didn't that regime also come up with the idea of video phones?

Perhaps Bernie knows what he's talking about...

A visit to the part of the RAF museum at Cosford will show the incredible guided missile research going on in Germany during the war (assuming the exhibits are still held there - it's been a while).

Passive, active, even radar beam riders, which we didn't perfect until around the eighties.

And all those scientists were quietly removed from Germany after the was and went to work in the US for Boeing, NASA and the like...

alan14. They might have settled quietly in the UK if we had been able to pay them enough.

The Russians grabbed some of the German scientists, too.

They settled in other places as well as the US.

This fragmentation of effort is one reason why it then took another twenty or so years before getting to a similar level of research as that prevailing in Germany at the war's end.

Bouncing bombs and Colossus (Turing) spring to mind.

Yes. But wasn't it a pity that all these scientists never got together to make the world a better place?
