    Entering the home straight

    The spring issue of the DLR Magazine allows its readers to join Alexander Gerst as he completes preparations for the 'Blue Dot' mission, which will run for six months, starting on 28 May 2014, on the International Space Station.

The spring issue of the DLR Magazine allows its readers to join Alexander Gerst as he completes preparations for the 'Blue Dot' mission, which will run for six months, starting on 28 May 2014, on the International Space Station.

Readers can also follow the continuing Rosetta mission – the Magazine was at the control centre when the spacecraft awoke from hibernation. After a journey that has so far lasted just over 10 years, Rosetta is now approaching Comet 67P Churyumov-Gerasimenko, where it will deploy the Philae lander in November 2014.

Join the DLR Magazine on a trip to the future of aviation, because, shortly before the Berlin Air Show (Internationale Luft- und Raumfahrtausstellung; ILA) that runs from 20 to 25 May 2014, we present a number of aviation topics: safe flying with up-to-date thunderstorm forecasting, new flight simulators and the SOFIA airborne observatory.

The traditional magazine categories of DLR staff portraits, news and reviews are accompanied by the first of a new series of articles devoted to wind tunnels.

The DLR magazine is available free of charge. It will arrive in your mailbox shortly, or you can order it here.

Edition 140-141, with additional photos, videos and original audio from researchers, is again available on iPad and Android devices – free of charge.
