Hermann Oberth Notes

With Goddard and Tsiolkovsky, Oberth, is one of the pioneers of modern space flight. Like his colleagues, Oberth was influenced by the science fiction writing of Jules Verne.

Oberth, in his Die Rakete zu den Planetenraumen (1923) showed mathematically that higher energy potential was possible with liquid propellants than solid, gunpowder-type fuels. This was a significant theoretical development since even Goddard's landmark 1919 paper on space travel did not consider liquid propellants.

While not a founding member, Oberth was involved in the German Society for Space Ship Travel (Verien fur Raumschiffahrt, or VfR) which was created in 1927. Oberth, who was born in Romania, became a German citizen and worked with Werner von Braun at Peenemunde, the German rocket development complex where the V-2 rocket was developed during the 1930s and 1940s.
