The Hermann Göring was a German spaceship built from an orbital space station in 1965 and named after former Luftwaffe chief Hermann Göring. It was powered with an atomic engine that allowed it to accelerate constantly. Its inaugural mission was to travel to the asteroid belt and set up German installations on asteroids, like the American vessel Lewis and Clark had done two years earlier. That same year, the vessel was destroyed by a Race nuclear missile during the Race-German War of 1965.
