Edit: I have to take this back now because I googled "what did Karl Benz invent" and the first result was "automobile".
Edit2: @ander317, I did understand the premise of the quiz, I just honestly never use the word automobile. I briefly considered it and (stupidly) discarded it without typing it to try. I was just trying to make excuses for my own idiocy.
I didn't even try "Auto" which 5 years of secondary school German taught me means car. I'm so ashamed. :-(
Fun facts about this rocket: its name translates to "Retribution Weapon." It could fly over 5000km/hr, and the 3000 that were manufactured killed about 9000 people directly. It was manufactured in Mittelbau-Dora, a slave labour concentration camp near Buchenwald; an estimated 20000 inmates died there. If you want to really have fun, look up Operation Paperclip or Operation Osoaviakhim to read about how its Nazi scientists were spirited away by the US and USSR to work on the Cold War.
