SpaceX and Elon Musk weren’t the first! About the meteoric rise and sudden fall of the first-ever pri- vate space company: foolhardy, ingenious and »Made in Germany«.

When the inventors almost topple the world order of the Cold War with their rocket launch system they come into the unrelenting firing line of super powers until their downfall seems certain.
