“But when the V-2 made its debut (the first one was launched against Paris on 6 Sept., 1944), it proved almost impossible to spot or shoot down. It was the first real “space ship”, for its maximum altitude (97 km) took it to the very edge of Earth’s atmosphere. And it came down in an arrow-straight trajectory at near-super-sonic speed ” – Detailed Information
