The Huntsville Times notes the death of Rudolf Schlidt, one of the last surviving members of Wernher von Braun's original "Paperclip" rocket team. He was 98.
Schlidt was a guided missile expert who was with von Braun developing the V-2 missile in Germany in World War II. His expertise was "rocket construction, testing and research of high temperature materials," according to his obituary. He accompanied von Braun to Fort Bliss, Texas, after the war and later to Huntsville, where the team led development of America's first missiles and later the Saturn V that took Americans to the moon.
