Our sun is one of 100 billion stars in our galaxy. Our galaxy is one of billions of galaxies populating the universe. It would be the height of presumption to think that we are the only living things in that enormous immensity. 
Von Braun's rocket team at Huntsville, Alabama, built the first American ballistic missile, named the Redstone. In August 1953, the first Redstone rocket was tested at Cape Canaveral, Florida. On January 31, 1958, a modified Redstone (the Jupiter C) put the first American satellite, Explorer I, into orbit.
