Nazi Astrophysics: stars made of ice?

Have been trying to track down this reference for a long time, I have resorted, out of utter desperation, to the SDMB.

Maybe it was a Nova show, don’t remember, but it had a fascinating reference to the effect that German astronomers and astrophysicists were forced to parrot a Nazi doctrine that the stars weren’t blazing balls of gas but where actually made of ice.

Anybody have any info on this?

This site talks about the views of one Hans Horbiger, who apparently made an impression on some Nazi bigwigs, and whose views on things seem rather reminiscent of those of the latercrackpot Immanuel Velikovsky.
