Let's suppose that a different Cold War happens
Tell that to von braun!Ha, ha.
If the Nazis, by some incredible fluke, survived WWII, they'd collapse economically and become a hellhole state that wouldn't have the resources to even begin to think about a moon program.
Could they cobble together a grapefruit-sized satellite and launch it on a V2 derived vehicle? Sure, if they wanted to spend the money. Them getting SOMETHING into orbit by.... 1950 say, is believable. Getting a man into space would be much much harder, and probably not affordable. The moon? Nope. No way.
I just posted this in another thread about Japan, but I imagine that if the Japanese Army had won the skirmish of Khalkhin Gol against the Soviets in 1939 (or a number of other skirmishes taking place in the 1930s), I can imagine the Japanese Army's "Strike North" doctrine becoming more influential over the Navy's "Southern Path" doctrine.Please provide some POD or premise.
