The new DLR short-arm centrifuge in :envihab

30. April 2013, 13.25
The new short-arm human centrifuge was installed in :envihab at DLR Cologne between late February and early March 2013. Installation of the 'heart of :envihab' lasted several weeks. We took advantage of this rare opportunity to take a closer look at the individual stages of the installation (with time-lapse video).

10. September 2012, 15.44
The DLR Magazine is the most important printed media in DLR’s communication portfolio. In spite of this, or rather, especially because of this, it is now available for tablets such as the iPad and devices running the Android operating system.

Tweeting from space for the digital public

21. May 2012, 16.19
Three space agencies, DLR, ESA and NASA, as well as their astronauts tweet, blog and post messages on a wide array of social media channels; often, they or respectively their astronauts even do so from space. Why do they do this, and how does it work? Here is what astronauts and social media experts at DLR, ESA and NASA had to say on this subject at re:publica 2012, Germany’s largest and most prominent conference on the future of society and all things digital.

The first european SpaceTweetup

12. August 2011, 13.37
Today we sent off the last invitation letters for the first european SpaceTweetup, jointly organised by DLR and ESA. I cannot make clear enough how happy I am to organise and host this event together with our friends from ESA's communication department. But before I give you a little bit of background information on how the event came about, let me first answer the often heard question:

DLR Blogs: improved readability

17. August 2010, 07.29
In the recent past, many of our readers pointed out a poor readability of DLR Blogs. We have optimised this last night. White font and dark blue links on a "brushed metal" background have now been replaced with a typical black font on a lighter coloured background.

NewsBlog renamed to KommBlog

06. August 2010, 14.25
Just a quick note: I've just renamed this blog (formerly "NewsBlog") to CommunicationBlog or "CommBlog". The reason behind is that - in relation to the news-oriented homepage of the DLR Web Portal - "NewsBlog" sounded misleading.

Welcome to the DLR Blogs

12. January 2010, 08.59
Today, we have taken our new DLR Blogs platform live; we wish to offer you a warm welcome. We are starting with three blogs. Firstly, there is a blog by Jan Wörner, chairman of the DLR Executive board, who offers insights into his work. Secondly, we have started our NewsBlog, in which we intend to publish the short stories, pictures, videos or other items of interest that do not find a place on the homepage of our web portal – www.dlr.de/en. Last but not least, there's the EnergyBlog. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung; BMBF) has nominated 'The Future of Energy' as the topic for the german Science Year 2010. This is more than sufficient reason for us to address the subject with a dedicated blog, in which we will also answer an 'Energy Question of the Week'.
