I stumbled upon this film by chance when a seller online sent me a DVD I didn't order. Curd Jürgens is totally believable as Wernher Von Braun, Herbert Lom disturbing as usual and Gia Scala perfect in the role of an English spy. The film isn't meant to glorify American efforts to launch a satellite into space, it rather raises some important questions like, for instance, ethical issues in Science. Recommended.
