Wernher Von Braun: The Original (U.S.) Rocket Scientist
This photo appeared on September 18, 1968, in the Marshall Star, the internal newspaper published by the Marshall Space Flight Center. The caption read, "Dr. Wernher von Braun gets the feel of being weightless in a recent airplane flight. He experienced the 'no-gravity' condition aboard an Air Force KC-135 over Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio. The aircraft achieves about 30 seconds of weightlessness by flying a special arc-like path."
