Schauer at the beginning of the 1970s by students of the Munich technical university and launched on March 12, 1974 from the jack-up drilling platform "Barbara" in the Baltic Sea. The Barbarella had a thrust of 370 N and used as fuel a toluidin aminophenol mixture and nitric acid. The Barbarella is today displayed in the Deutsches Museum in Munich.
