“Rocket Testing Sites” presents some of the lesser known rocket testing sites founded with a better understanding of physics and rocketry provided by Goddard, beginning with the development of the V-2 and A-4 rockets. The chapter focuses on some histories of rocket testing involving Operation Paperclip and Werner Von Braun, such as the Saturn V and Redstone projects. It also focuses on memorable launching experimentation at a variety of facilities in the U.S., like the White Sands in New Mexico, the neighbouring Pioneer Deep Space Station, Cape Canaveral in Florida, the Edwards and Holloman Air Force Bases, and the Santa Susana Field Laboratory.
