Off to a Good Start[edit]

This article seems to be well rooted in historical fact. Even though the Saturn programs were originated by the von Braun group at Huntsville, this article seems less compromised by the sort of exaggerated expression of the German contribution to U.S. rocketry that plagues most other article on U.S. space launch vehicles. At least this article acknowledges that Atlas and Titan were primarily the product of largely independent Air Force programs that went on to benefit the Saturn programs--as opposed to the popular misconception that the reverse was true. Let us hope that as the article progresses, proper credit continues to be given to unique U.S. contributions to rocketry without someone pushing the tiresome "everything came out of Germany" theory of rocket development. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Magneticlifeform (talkcontribs) 09:13, 14 October 2011 (UTC)
