Ernst Karl Klauss (May 16, 1914 - July 29, 1986) was a German research and design engineer. Born in Berlin, Germany, he apprenticed in mechanical design at Orenstein & Koppel from 1929 to 1932 and received on-job training, which eventually led him to becoming an engineer. From 1939 to 1945, Klauss worked in Peenemuende, Germany, where he helped in constructing some of the first V-2 rockets. He was brought to the United States via Operation Paperclip, arriving at Fort Bliss, Texas by late 1945. As part of Operation Paperclip, he worked with Wernher von Braun as one of the operation's rocket scientists. By 1950, he arrived in Huntsville, Alabama and eventually became the Senior Project Engineer of the Skylab mission. From 1960 to 1970, he was a specialist employed at the Marshall Space Flight Center, ending his career there as "Senior Technical Assistant to the Director of the Quality and Reliability Laboratory." Klauss passed away on July 29, 1986 during a visit in Ottobrunn, Germany.
