Answer:

Well, lots of answers, actually, and all of them are valid and related connects. Best of them all was shrik’s answer:

1. Movie poster for Fritz Lang’s “Woman In The Moon”
2. The first successfully launched German V2 rocket – it had the Frau im Mond logo painted on it, owing to Werner von Braun (designer of the rocket) being assistant to Hermann Oberth (tech advisor to the movie)

    the first pic is of the movie frau in mond by fritz lang. had the first countdown sequence ever, and also had herman oberth as a special scientist in the movie for consulting. Herman oberth also went on to make the A4 which paved the way for the famous V-2 (pic 2) which was finally made by Von Braun who was a student of oberth.

    ‘Frau im mond’, is considered to be the first sci-fi, which dealt with rocket blast offs. The logo of the name ‘Frau im mond’ appeared on the base of the first successfully launched V-2 as a sign of acknowledgment to the movie’s ripe ideas.

    PS: It’s strange.. The details on the movie-poster’s pic seem to be blacked out right at first sight. One zoom-in into the pic, and the director’s name lies there, naked!

    Lang’s “Frau im Mond” was majorly popular among Werner von Braun’s V-2 making gang because one of the boys – Oberth – was an advisor on the movie. So when the first V-2 went up, they had the logo of the movie painted on it.


  6. Pic 1 – Woman in the Moon, or in original German, Frau im Mond is a science fiction silent film released in 1929, and is often considered to be one of the first “serious” science fiction films.
    Pic 2 – The V-2 rocket was the first ballistic missile and first man-made object to achieve sub-orbital spaceflight

    1. Frau im Mond or Woman in the moon(in UK)
    2. V2 rocket

    The first successfully launched V-2 rocket at the rocket development facility in Peenemünde had the Frau im Mond logo painted on its base. Thomas Pynchon’s Gravity’s Rainbow, which deals with the V2 rockets, makes reference to this fact along with several other classic German silent films.

    The first successfully launched V-2 rocket (2) had the logo of German movie Frau im Mond (1) painted on its base.

    Pic 1 -> Poster of the silent sci-fi movie Frau im Mond.
    Pic 2 -> A German V-2 rocket

    The movie was initially banned by the Nazis since they felt the diagrams in the movie may be too technically informative. However, a Frau im mond logo was painted at the base of the first successfully launched V-2 rocket.
