Nordhausen is a Soviet institute created in February 1946 to study German V-2 rockets in the city of Nordhausen (Germany). The Nordhausen included three Vau-2 rockets assembly plants, the Rabe Institute, the Montaña plant manufacturing the V-2 engines, and the bench base in Leesten’s quarry, where their fire tests were carried out, and the Sonderhausen plant involved in assembling the control system equipment.

Immediately after the war, the Mittelwerk plant, located in the mountains of Thuringia, where they built V-2, was in the zone of occupation of the Allied forces. The Americans took out about 100 tons of captured cargo (missiles, engines, spare parts), chief designer Werner von Braun and all the backbone of the missile group in the United States. But two months later they gave this territory to the USSR in exchange for West Berlin. L. M. Gaidukov became the director of the new institute, S. P. Korolev as chief engineer, and V. P.Glushko led the department for the study of engines V-2.

The institute worked for two years, after which samples of missiles, machine tools, documentation and other developments were exported to the USSR. The results of the Institute’s work were the P-series rockets, on the basis of which carrier rockets were created, which made it possible for the first time in the world to make a manned flight into outer space.
