Research aircraft, uncrewed flight, experiments for the Space Station and an Antarctic greenhouse

20. April 2018

The German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) will present its latest projects and research results at the ILA Berlin Air Show from 25 to 29 April 2018. Again one of the largest institutional exhibitors in 2018, DLR will provide fascinating insights into its current research on an approximately 700-square-metre stand in Hall 4, in the Space Pavilion, on the stand of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) in Hall 2, and at the ILA CareerCenter in Hall 1.

Hyperspectral instrument DESIS en route to International Space Station in 2018

19. April 2018

The German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) and the United States corporation Teledyne Brown Engineering (TBE) are announcing the completion of the development and manufacturing process of the DESIS hardware.

Second DLR Conference on Climate Change in Cologne

17. April 2018

Why is Earth's climate changing? It is considered extremely likely that global warming is caused by a rise in greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane due to human activity. How these changes impact the numerous processes taking place in Earth's climate system remains uncertain.

DLRmagazine 157 – A perfect duet

12. April 2018

A spectacular chase in the sky is featured in the DLRmagazine 157: NASA's DC-8 flies behind the DLR research aircraft ATRA and analyses its wake. In order to be able to successfully analyse the effect of biofuels on aircraft emissions, the ideal circumstances included low temperature and humid air as these allow clear contrails to be formed.

Ismenia Patera – impact crater or supervolcano?

12. April 2018

Images from the High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) operated by the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) on board ESA's Mars Express spacecraft show the collapsed depression Ismenia Patera. There are two hypotheses regarding the formation of this geological structure – it is either an impact crater or the caldera of a Martian supervolcano.

Microlaunchers - a reorganisation of the route to space

11. April 2018

The Ariane launch vehicle family and the Vega launcher guarantee Europe's independent access to space. With an eye on the now rapidly changing situation in the launch market, the question is being asked – how can this successful portfolio of space launchers be expanded in the future? Additionally, what is the outlook in this for new and unconventional ideas?

HY4 Fliegen mit der Brennstoffzelle

DLR at the Hannover Messe 2018

11. April 2018

Energy is more than electricity; in order to increase the proportion of renewable energy not only in power generation but also in the areas of heating and mobility, energy must be transferred from one sector to another. At the Hannover Messe, from 23 to 27 April 2018, the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) will show how the coupling of sectors makes the energy system more flexible and more environmentally friendly (Hall 27, Stand H84).

Copernicus Masters enters next round

10. April 2018

The new competition season is underway. The German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) is once again looking for the best application ideas in the area of Earth observation for the Copernicus Masters. The international competition is organised by the Anwendungszentrum Oberpfaffenhofen (AZO). "Um Entscheidungen treffen zu können, benötigen Politik, Wirtschaft und Wissenschaft dauerhaft verlässliche und aktuelle Informationen", erklärt Professor Pascale Ehrenfreund, Vorsitzende des Vorstandes des DLR. Diese Informationen auf Basis von Erdbeobachtungsdaten bereitzustellen ist das Ziel von Copernicus, dem Erdbeobachtungsprogramm der Europäischen Union (EU), das sie unter anderem in Partnerschaft mit der Europäischen Weltraumorganisation (ESA ) und den Mitgliedsstaaten umsetzt. Copernicus liefert wertvolle Daten zur Erdoberfläche, Atmosphäre, zu Ozeanen, zum Katastrophenmanagement, Klimawandel und zur Sicherheit.

horizons mission – first experiments on their way to the ISS

2. April 2018

The first experiments to be conducted as part of the horizons mission with German ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst are on their way to the International Space Station (ISS). At 22:30 CEST on 2 April 2018 (16:30 local time), a Falcon 9 launcher with a US Dragon capsule lifted off from the Cape Canaveral spaceport in Florida, bound for the ISS.

HALO research aircraft measures the emissions of megacities

21. March 2018

Air quality in major cities is a hot topic, especially with regard to road traffic and residents' health. However, emissions do not just remain in conurbations. Instead, particles and gaseous pollutants can often be transported thousands of kilometres by the wind.
