Ein durchtrennter Krater in Memnonia Fossae auf dem Mars

A 'split' crater in Memnonia Fossae

28. April 2016

The images presented here, acquired by the High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) operated by the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) on board the European Space Agency (ESA) Mars Express spacecraft, show part of the Memnonia Fossae region on Mars.

Emission-free, electric flight – DLR presents the HY4 research platform at the 2016 Hannover Trade Fair

26. April 2016

Electrically powered, locally emission-free passenger aircraft are set to make the transport of the future more sustainable and flexible. They have the potential to bring electromobility to the skies in the coming decades, networking with ground-based transport carriers, and thus making travel faster and easier for passengers. Researchers at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) are currently working with partners from industry and research institutions on the development of the HY4 test platform.

Sentinel-1B – Second eye of the Earth guardian in orbit

25. April 2016

Two eyes are better than one; this principle is also true for the two radar satellites that make up the Sentinel-1 mission. On 25 April 2016 at 23:02 CEST, the Sentinel-1B Earth observation satellite lifted off from Europe's spaceport in French Guiana on board a Soyuz launch vehicle.

DLR at the Hannover Trade Fair: Intelligent wind turbines, efficient energy storage and 40 years of energy research

22. April 2016

Using their knowledge and expertise in the field of aviation, researchers from the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) have developed innovative ideas for wind turbine rotors. During the Hannover Trade Fair, which will take place from 25 to 29 April 2016, they will demonstrate how their intelligent rotor blades adapt to wind loads.

Verfolgungsjagd bei Höchstgeschwindigkeit

On a high-speed train at night – DLR researchers develop train-to-train communication

19. April 2016

In the course of a measurement campaign conducted in Italy by the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) transmission properties between the individual carriages of high-speed trains and the entire train were measured to develop systems that will enable reliable communication.

Opening of the Robotics and Mechatronics Center by Federal Minister Ilse Aigner

15. April 2016

The Robotics and Mechatronics Center (RMC) is one of the world's largest and most important research centres for applied automation and robotics. The cluster, which is formed by three DLR institutes, now has the required infrastructure.

Forty years of DLR energy research: Think tank for solar power plants

14. April 2016

The German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) is celebrating its fortieth year of energy research in 2016, giving decision makers a chance to reflect. One of these decision makers is Michael Geyer, who is a physicist and engineer, and an expert on solar thermal power plants.

Focusing on lightweight design and crashworthiness – DLR transport researchers sign cooperation agreement with Canadian universities

13. April 2016

To make the cars of the future lighter and at the same time safer, researchers from the Institute of Vehicle Concepts at the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) have been working on new lightweight, hybrid design methods and innovative crashworthiness concepts.

Aerospace medicine – how do blood vessel cells behave in space?

8. April 2016

On 8 April 2016, at 22:43 CEST, the German SPHEROIDS experiment was launched to the ISS in a Dragon capsule on board a Falcon 9 rocket of the US aerospace company SpaceX.

40 years of DLR energy research: How renewable energy came out of the niche

7. April 2016

This year, the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) is celebrating 40 years of energy research and reflects on the very first days with the the protagonists. Gerd Eisenbeiß is one of them. He was the Programme Director for Energy and Transport Research at DLR and later the Director for Energy and Materials Research at the Jülich Research Center.
