4050383 submission Submission + - Peenemunde V1 and V2 Launch Site Submitted by Skjellifetti on Monday April 06, 2009 @12:46PM Skjellifetti writes: The Peenemünde Historical Site has secured 3.9 million euros ($5.2 million) for renovation. The money comes from Chancellor Angela Merkel's 82 billion-euro stimulus package, designed to revive Europe's largest economy. Peenemünde is where the Nazis developed and fired some 25,000 V1 and V2 rockets at Belgium, France, and the U.K. during WWII. "Once the rockets are up, who cares where they come down? That's not my department," says Wernher von Braun.
