Caption: Oberth and von Braun spaceflight presentation, 1958. At right, US rocket scientist Charles Arthur Lundquist (1928-2017) is giving a presentation on orbital trajectories to German physicist and engineer Hermann Oberth (1894-1989, far left) and German-US rocket scientist and aerospace engineer Wernher Von Braun (1912-1977, centre left) at the Army Ballistic Missile Agency in Huntsville, Alabama, USA. Von Braun and Oberth (von Braun's mentor) were active proponents of spaceflight and space stations. Lundquist at this time was the Chief of the Physics and Astrophysics branch of the Army Ballistic Missile Agency, and like von Braun would play a key role in the US spaceflight agency NASA. This presentation took place on 28 June 1958, with NASA officially established the following month.
