Disney, NASA, and Nazis? Oh my!
By 1955, through Operation Paperclip, the US Government pardoned and imported over 760 of Hitler’s top Nazi scientists, many of which went on to establish modern US rocket science and ultimately NASA. Among them were Heinz Haber and Wernher von Braun, who later became popular through Walt Disney. And speaking of Walt, did you know that he worked for the FBI as an SAC (Special Agent in Charge), appointed by Herbert Hoover himself?
