Klaus Bernhard von Storch Krüger (born February 20, 1962) is a Chilean aerospace engineer and astronaut trainee.

Von Storch was born in Osorno, in southern Chile. In 1992, he was selected by the Chilean Space Agency for the preparation for the flight on the Space Shuttle. In 2001, he was considered as candidate for that flight aboard a Russian spacecraft during a taxi flight to the ISS in Spring 2003; but in September 2002 the medical board at the IMBP was not passed. He is hoping to fly in the future.
