They didn't "seriously plan" to build it. They "seriously thought" about it. Kind of a big difference there.

It would have cost more money than Germany had at the time, plus going into outer space on a scale which wasn't feasible even in Werner von Braun's most fevered dreams of rocketry. Von Braun knew it would work on paper, but there was no way to make it happen, and they all knew it at the time.

Say what you will about the Nazis, but they sure knew how to throw a parade.

And the Nazis invented the sex doll too... Hitler wanted to protect his soldiers from venereal diseases when sexing up the prisoners out in the battle field.

Hier kommt die Sonne
(crank it up!)

Alle warten auf das Licht
Fürchtet euch,fürchtet euch nicht
Die Sonne scheint mir aus den Augen
Sie wird heut Nacht nicht untergehn
und die Welt zählt laut bis zehn

(All are waiting for the light
Afraid, or not afraid
The sun shines in my eyes
It will not go down tonight
And the world counts loudly to ten)

HMMMMMmmmmm... given modern technology and geosynchronous satellites, how about something similar for the purposes of power generation? a fold-out kite making a big semishphere with a photovoltaic surface for it's own power capture, and a layer above that works like an LED, either translucent or reflective for off and on respectively. fault tolerant to puncture wounds for space debris, point that sucker at a receiver on earth and program itself not to turn on the reflectivity unless aimed correctly, and voila-- giant-sized solar power generator. or would the ratio of realistic satellite sizes or distance and atmospheric dispersion make it not worthwhile?

The Daily Mail and its readership sure do have an closeted interest in the Nazis and Hitler.

Curly fries, even. Pretty decent.

Their roast beef sucks, though.

Consider this:  You'd be heating the atmosphere immediately above each station by a very large amount.  You might want to think about it first.

Hitler: Geben Sie mir das Joint, Aschface.

Himmler: Wir should totally put ein giganten Asch...*snicker*...in Schpace.

Himmler: "Guten Tag, Herr Roosevelt, ich bin ein giganten Asch...IM SCHPACE!"

Hitler: *coughing and choking*

And it wouldn't need to be in space.

Hitler was a Teutonic Twat.

And THIS, time traveling assassins, is why you DON'T  kill Hitler.
Waste of resources that otherwise would have gone to practical weapons.
The V1s were cheap enough, but rarely hit military targets or killed anyone important.

Now, imagine a V-1 with a GPS receiver in it, and a simple computer that can guide it to precise coordinates.

German army would use it to 'burn enemy cities' or 'boil part of an ocean'
Would also contain a manned space station complete with gardens


Well that's nice, at least.

The Pentagon was considering this, but Republicans rejected it because solar was "too green".
