Werner, he could’ve had on Mars by 1990… but the times changed and the government put its interests elsewhere.

Don’t blame NASA. The agency didn’t exist at the time

We’re the scientists themselves actually involved in any of the war crimes?

Gather ’round while I sing you of Wernher von Braun,
A man whose allegiance
Is ruled by expedience.
Call him a Nazi, he won’t even frown,
“Ha, Nazi, Schmazi” says Wernher von Braun.
Don’t say that he’s hypocritical,
Say rather that he’s apolitical.
“Once the rockets are up, who cares where they come down?
That’s not my department” say Wernher von Braun.
Some have harsh words for this man of renown,
But some think our attitude
Should be one of gratitude,
Like the widows and cripples in old London town,
Who owe their large pension to Wernher von Braun.
You too may be a big hero,
Once you’ve learned to count backwards to zero.
“In German, oder Englisch, I know how to count down,
Und I’m learning Chinese!” says Wernher von Braun!

Only one Paperclip scientist, Georg Rickhey, was formally tried for any crime, and no Paperclip scientist was found guilty of any crime, in America or Germany. Von Braun was a scientist and would do his research in whatever country that would offer it.

Michael J. Neufeld, a widely published author of aerospace history and chief of the Space History Division at the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum wrote about Von Braun’s ties to the Nazi party

>Von Braun, like other Peenemünders, was assigned to the local group in Karlshagen; there is no evidence that he did more than send in his monthly dues. But he is seen in some photographs with the party’s swastika pin in his lapel – it was politically useful to demonstrate his membership.

Von Braun’s position in the SS was also basically just for SS political capital, and was the only way to continue his work. Von Braun wrote in 1947

>In spring 1940, one SS-Standartenfuehrer (SS-colonel) Mueller from Greifswald, a bigger town in the vicinity of Peenemünde, looked me up in my office … and told me that Reichsfuehrer SS Himmler had sent him with the order to urge me to join the SS. I told him I was so busy with my rocket work that I had no time to spare for any political activity. He then told me, that … the SS would cost me no time at all. I would be awarded the rank of a[n] “Untersturmfuehrer” (lieutenant) and it were [sic] a very definite desire of Himmler that I attend his invitation to join.
>I asked Mueller to give me some time for reflection. He agreed.
Realizing that the matter was of highly political significance for the relation between the SS and the Army, I called immediately on my military superior, Dr. Dornberger. He informed me that the SS had for a long time been trying to get their “finger in the pie” of the rocket work. I asked him what to do. He replied on the spot that if I wanted to continue our mutual work, I had no alternative but to join.

In defense, most scientists were forced against their will to help the Nazis.
