Pioneers - Hermann Oberth and Wernher von Braun

Space pioneer Hermann Oberth was considered by many to be the most famous mentor of Wernher von Braun. In the spring of 1930, a young Wernher von Braun enrolled at the Berlin Institute of Technology and in his spare time assisted Oberth in his early experiments in testing a liquid-fueled rocket stage with about 65 newtons (15 pounds) of thrust.
