The Invention of the Countdown

23,00 EURO
Against his father’s will, Hermann Oberth moves to Göttingen in 1920 in order to study physics - the most exciting science of his age in the most exciting city there is. Hermann wants to turn the human dream of sending rockets to the moon into reality. The young man is considered very talented, but right before he makes his major breakthrough, his professor decides to stop supporting Hermann’s research. It now falls to his wife Tilla to keep their lives above water until someone believes in Hermann’s research again. When that happens, the person in question is Wernher von Braun, a member of the SS Corps. Instead of moon rockets, Hermann is invited to help develop the V2 rocket, a retaliatory weapon for the Nazis to use. Hermann and Tilla are suddenly confronted with the question of their own personal responsibility when faced by the march of history. This question becomes all the more important when they lose both their son Julius and their daughter Ilse to the war.
In a countdown from 10 to 0, we follow a narrative about human errors, setbacks, and people picking themselves back up again. Scientific ethics come alive in this story plucked from modern history.
