About Nikolaus August Otto
(10 June 1832, Holzhausen an der Haide, Nassau - 26 January 1891, Cologne)
was the German inventor of the first internal-combustion engine to
efficiently burn fuel directly in a piston chamber.
Although other internal combustion engines had been
invented these were not based on four separate strokes.
Though the concept of four strokes had been theorized in 1861 by Alphonse Beau de Rochas,
Otto was the first to make it practical.
