•  Question - In Magnus von Braun's (brother to Wernher) Wikipedia bio, it says that he (Magnus) received his Masters degree in organic chemistry, and became an assistant to Nobel laureate Hans Fischer. In Hans Fischer's Wikipedia bio, it says he received his Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 1930. It says that the lunar crater Fischer was named after him in 1976. But this is not Fischer that came to Huntsville in 1950 because the wikipedia bio says. "He committed suicide in Munich after his institute and his work were destroyed during the last days of World War II."

"Group of 104 German rocket scientists in 1946, including Wernher von Braun,[1] Ludwig Roth and Arthur Rudolph, at Fort Bliss, Texas. The group had been subdivided into two sections: a smaller one at White Sands Proving Grounds for test launches and the larger at Fort Bliss for research.[2] Many had worked to develop the V-2 Rocket at Peenemünde Germany and came to the U.S. after World War II, subsequently working on various rockets including the Explorer 1 Space rocket and the Saturn (rocket) at NASA."
