Georg Hans Madelung (1889-1972), a noted German aeronautical engineer, was involved during WW2 with aeronautical warfare research, including work with von Braun's rocket program. After the war, Madelung resumed work in both Germany and the USA.

Madelung's research included the effects of high acceleration on the human body and the design of parachutes for various applications. The importance of this work was swiftly recognised by the western allies resulting in this and other reports.
