I was thinking they’d wait for the season finale.
Then again, this is a time travel show, so it’s possible to go there a second time.
But looking up the history of von Braun, this quote was interesting:
We knew that we had created a new means of warfare, and the question as to what nation, to what victorious nation we were willing to entrust this brainchild of ours was a moral decision more than anything else. We wanted to see the world spared another conflict such as Germany had just been through, and we felt that only by surrendering such a weapon to people who are guided by the Bible could such an assurance to the world be best secured.
Boldface emphasis added by me
What would he have made of post-9/11 America?
Aside from character development, I thought this was a rather light episode.
But I’ll still watch.
