Nazi Germany V-2 rocket launch failure. Footage of the launch and crash failure of a German V-2 rocket in the 1940s. Designed and built in Germany during World War II, this rocket was 14 metres in length and carried nearly a tonne of explosive. It was the world's first ballistic missile, and the first to achieve sub-orbital flight. The first successful flight was on 3 October 1942. From September 1944 to March 1945, over 3000 V-2 rockets were launched by Nazi Germany during the war. The work on the V-2 rocket laid the foundations for later work on space flight.
