Biographical / Historical

Fritz Karl Pauli (1891-1968) was a German engineer specializing in developing propulsion systems. He worked as part of the V-2 rocket team under Wernher von Braun during the Second World War. After the Allied Victory, Pauli resided in East Germany until such time as he left for France, and from there, the United States of America. In the U.S., Pauli settled in Huntsville, Alabama, as part of Von Braun’s NASA rocket team, contributing to the American victory in the space race against the USSR.
