Wernher Von Braun

 
Known as "the father of space travel." Von Braun (1912-1977) was one of the world's first and foremost rocket engineers and a leading authority on space travel.

His will to expand knowledge through the exploration of space led to the development of the Explorer satellites, the Jupiter and Jupiter-C rockets, Pershing, the Redstone rocket, Saturn rockets, and Skylab, the world's first space station.

Additionally, his determination to "go where no man has gone before" led to mankind setting foot on the moon through development of the Saturn V that launched Apollo 5 to travel to the moon in 1968.

He helped found the National Space Institute in 1975 and served as its first president.
