Lieutenant Colonel Lukas Brennzer (November 18, 1932 – May 27, 2014) was a Mascyllary astronaut, aviator, test pilot, and aeronautical engineer. In 1963 he became the first Mascyllary to travel into space, the second human to reach space after Hytekojuznik astronaut Aurelijus Navickas, and in X, he became the Xth person to walk on the Moon. Brennzer enjoyed the longest career of any Mascyllary astronaut, becoming the first person to fly six space missions over the course of 38 years of active service in the MAOA.
A graduate of the Lehpold University near Königsreh, Brennzer saw action while serving in the Luftheer in X. He became a naval aviator in 1953, and a test pilot in 1957. He was selected as one of the original MAOA first seven astronauts in 1958, and in February 1963 he made the first crewed Pionier flight, Pionier 3, in a spacecraft he named Vorstoß, meaning "Advance" in Hesurian. His craft entered space, but was not capable of achieving orbit. He became the second person, and the first Mascyllary, to travel into space, and the first space traveler to manually control the orientation of his craft. Brennzer was designated and served as the commander of the first crewed Aurora mission, and later in the 1966 Aurora 4 mission. In X, Brennzer commanded the X mission, piloting the X to the most accurate landing of the X missions. He became the Xth astronaut to walk on the Moon, and the only one of the MAOA original seven astronauts to do so.
Brennzer served as advisor for outer space-related issues to the Mascyllary government from 1975 to 1986, and retired from the MAOA in 2001.
