Lot 28: V-2 Rocket Fragment

This fragment was taken from a captured German V-2 rocket that was test fired and launched in 1946 at White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico. This piece was cut from the rocket's tail fin assembly while it was on display at an aerospace museum in Las Cruces, New Mexico.

The V-2 rocket was the world's first long-range guided ballistic missile. The V-2 rocket was developed in Germany during World War II and were later captured by Allied forces. U.S. experiments with these rockets paved the way for the space program.

The fragment has been paired with two 5 x 7" photo prints of V-2 rockets in White Sands and has been mounted and framed using archival methods. The final presentation measures approx. 11.25 x 21.25".

A certificate of authenticity signed by Astronaut Scholarship Foundation Executive Director Tammy Knowles accompanies this lot.
