Friedwardt Winterberg, a doctoral student of Werner Heisenberg, is a German-American theoretical physicist and research professor at the University of Nevada, Reno. With more than 260 publications and three books, he is known for his research in areas spanning general relativity, Planck scale physics, nuclear fusion, and plasmas. "His work in nuclear rocket propulsion earned him the 1979 Hermann Oberth Gold Medal of the Wernher von Braun International Space Flight Foundation and in 1981 a citation by the Nevada Legislature." He is also an honorary member of the German Aerospace Society Lilienthal-Oberth.

He is known for his ideas which lead to the development of GPS, his fusion activism, his first proposal to experimentally test Elsasser's theory of the geodynamo, his defense of rocket scientist Arthur Rudolph, and his involvement in the Albert Einstein-David Hilbert priority dispute.
