Walt Disney and Wernher von Braun

OK, so I didn't know that these two knew or work with each other. You know of Walt, but if you have never heard of von Braun, you should. He essentially hauled US space flight program, the first and most popular "rocket scientist".

In any case, a historical photo of Disney and von Braun has been released.

In this historical photo from the U.S. space agency, Werhner von Braun, then Chief, Guided Missile Development Operation Division at Army Ballistic Missile Agency (ABMA) in Redstone Arsenal, Alabama, was visited by Walt Disney in 1954. In the 1950's, von Braun worked with Disney Studio as a technical director, making three films about space exploration for television.
