William Picketing, James Van Allen, and German scientist Wernher von Braun (from L to R) brandish a model of the first American satellite "Explorer 1", 31 January 1958 after the satellite was launched of by a "Jupiter C" rocket at Cap Canaveral Space Center. Wernher von Braun's team developed the Jupiter-C, a modified Redstone rocket, which successfully launched Explorer 1. This event signaled the birth of America's space program. Von Braun, who was pivotal in Germany's pre-war rocket development program and was responsible for the design and realization of the V-2 combat rocket during World War II, entered the United States at the end of the war through the then-secret Operation Paperclip.
