White Sands Proving Ground. in New Mexico became the center of the US experiments with the V-2. Since the rockets were launched without warheads, there were plenty of space for scientific use of the rockets. So the V-2 ended up as a sounding rocket.
V-2 no. 3 was launched on May 10, 1946 and were the second V-2 launched from White Sands (No. 1 was only used for a static test).
Like the first V-2 launched by von Braun in Germany, the rocket was decorated with a pin-up girl.
The V-2 carried
different scientific instruments. The flight was a success,
but the scientific payload was more or less destroyed at the impact with
the ground. The V-2 were after all not designed as a sounding rocket.
