    NOORDUNG / A Voyage Through Our Solar System (4K)

    NOORDUNG is an experimental short film showcasing the beauties of our solar system. It is a personal project dedicated to the Slovene rocket engineer and pioneer of cosmonautics Herman Potocnik Noordung. He is chiefly remembered for his work addressing the long-term human habitation of space.

    At the end of 1928, he published his sole book (The Problem of Space Travel - The Rocket Motor) in Berlin. Potocnik's book described geostationary satellites and discussed communication between them and the ground using radio, but fell short of the idea of using satellites for mass broadcasting and as telecommunications relays. The wheel-shaped space station served as an inspiration for further development by Wernher von Braun (another former VfR member) in 1952. Von Braun saw orbiting space stations as a stepping stone to travel to other planets. In 1968, Stanley Kubrick's groundbreaking film, 2001: A Space Odyssey, depicted such a role for "Space Station V.
