In the 1920s, visionaries in the United States, Germany, the Soviet Union, and elsewhere began developing liquid-fuel rockets with an eye toward space travel. Within a couple of decades, rockets and missiles had begun to alter the course of the 20th century, as nations built long-range weapons to threaten each other and defend themselves and to lauch satellites and human explorers into space. See some of the early rockets and missiles that led the way to the modern era.

  • Loon Missile
