Jeff Rense has published a video with two UFO films supposedly made in Germany in the Nazi Era.
First is in the beginning, the second after 05:40. There are a lot of photos of supposedly nazi ufos in between.

I believe the highest altitude reached by a V2 was about 60 miles. Top speeds were actually less than 3500 mph - far below the 17,500 mph required for orbit and a fraction of Earth's 25,000 mph escape velocity. Still, quite an achievement for 1940s technology.

It's easy to portray German rocket scientists as some kind of magicians but German interest in rockets actually goes back into the 1920s with guys like Hermann Oberth (Oberth wrote a book in 1923 suggesting that rockets could take us into interplanetary space). He was static testing rocket engines in 1929. With the help of the Reich, he and his many colleagues were well equipped and well financed.

By comparison, nobody paid much attention to the equally brilliant Robert Goddard here in the States. Goddard actually holds the patent for the multi-stage and liquid-fueled rocket... both granted in 1915! I think we might have been surprised had Goddard received the support and financing of the US government.

Bottom line, while the Germans lead in way in rockets, they made no unusual, dramatic breakthroughs - they simply built incrementally on known ideas and made them work. There's no reason to believe they received and 'unusual' help or that they yielded any 'unusual' results.

Here's a recording made of a V2 trying to reach Space.
