So investor Steve Jurvetson's new rocket — which could so easily have got him into trouble with airline security when he played with the wireframe models on a recent flight — had a successful launch. The emerald-green Telstar Logistics V2.0 — a scaled-down replica of Hitler's V2 'vengeance weapon' — reached a height of 4,888 feet. But don't call the V2 a Nazi rocket, as Valleywag did. Jurvetson, the DFJ partner who spotted Hotmail, gets touchy on the subject. His interest is purely historical. A clip of the launch, after the jump.
