Unknown Pioneers – the inspiring story of the Rocket Girls

Unknown Pioneers – the inspiring story of the Rocket Girls

The Rocket Girls were created as human calculators to support scientists as part of the American space programme. They differed from their colleagues not only in terms of their gender, but also their skin colour – not exactly a minor issue in the USA of the 1950s. Nevertheless, women like Katherine Johnson managed to have impressive careers.

Bertha Benz – the inspirational woman who paved the way for the automotive industry

Her spectacular endurance journey, all the way from Mannheim to Pforzheim, not only helped the automobile to achieve a breakthrough: it made the entire process of innovation possible thanks to her courage, determination and idealism.

William Bushnell Stout and his achievements on the way to developing the “Ford Trimotor” passenger aircraft

With revolutionary aircraft designs and engine constructions, William Bushnell laid the groundwork for the triple-engined Ford Trimotor passenger plane. This rugged range of aircraft was very popular with pilots due to its easy to handle flying dynamics and became known as the “Tin Goose” due to its corrugated metal cladding. The engine concept, which was highly unconventional at the time, lived on in many further models in the Ford Trimotor series and bore witness to Stout’s engineering and technical achievements.

Hanns Klemm – Light aircraft manufacturer and pioneer

As one of the best known aircraft designers of his time, Hans Klemm’s ideas of light and aerodynamic aircraft made his reputation as an aviation pioneer. The German engineer and entrepreneur developed exciting aircrafts such as the Klemm 35, which was a freestanding low-wing plane that was capable of performing stunt flying and which had a production run of over 1,300.
