When German rocket scientist Wernher Von Braun immigrated to the United States after World War II, he took to the pages of Collier's magazine to launch one of the most influential popular science writing series of all time. Beginning with the March 22, 1952 issue, Von Braun sketched out his vision of a manned space program—starting with orbiting and spinning space stations, working through lunar landings, and culminating in a massive expedition to Mars.
