In 1928, along with Wernher von Braun, Rolf Engel joined the newly formed Berlin Section of the Verein Für Raumschiffahrt (German Rocket Society), where he participated in liquid propellant rocket experiments at the Raketenflugplatz (Rocket Airfield) with people like Rudolf Nebel, Willy Ley, Klaus Riedel and von Braun. Engel also worked as chief technical assistant to Johannes Winkler, who launched the HW-1 rocket on February 20, 1931 at a military parade ground near Dessau. This event represented the first launching of a liquid propellant rocket by someone other than Robert Goddard. This collection consists of files for eight different projects related to rockets conceived by members of the Verein für Raumschiffahrt, including Hermann Oberth, Rudolf Nebel, Franz Mengering, Reinhold Tiling, Johannes Winkler and some unattributed work.
