Konrad Dannenberg

Konrad Dannenberg passed away this morning.

Konrad Dannenberg was, of course, one of the original German rocket scientists to have come over from Peenemünde with Wernher von Braun shortly before the end of World War II. He was 96 years old and is survived by his wife, Jackie.

The Huntsville Times has a short writeup, as does WHNT.

There will be a memorial service at the Davidson Center at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center at 2pm this Friday.

In the 1980s, Konrad Dannenberg could often be found at the Space Center giving lectures to the campers.

In his memory, here’s a video from 1987 of Konrad Dannenberg taking an Adult Space Academy group on a tour of Rocket Park.
