New thrust for Ariane 6

28. June 2017

Space travel is not possible without launchers. Every space activity is based on this simple fact. Launcher systems connect Earth to space. They transport people and materials into space and deliver research and commercial satellites to orbit. Launchers provide the only way to conduct scientific research and ensure commercial utilisation of space.

The future of space transport: Will large satellite networks change our way into space?

12. April 2017

The importance of global networks for the aerospace sector has grown enormously. Increasingly widespread digitalisation and the spiralling volume of data generated are redefining the requirements for the space sector. Plans for a long-term expansion of large satellite networks as the basis for a global communication system are becoming more and more apparent.

Alcohol as rocket fuel – German-Brazilian cooperation project is based on 'green' propulsion

14. February 2017

The German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) and the Brazilian aerospace agency Agência Espacial Brasileira (AEB) have taken a big step forward in the development of a new rocket that is fuelled with oxygen and alcohol.

A greenhouse in space, quieter aircraft, and cargo that flies to its destination on its own

26. January 2017

Climate change, digitalisation, Industry 4.0 and transformation of the energy and traffic systems – these central societal responsibilities will be at the heart of the research conducted by the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) in 2017. DLR will present the focus of this year's research and some selected projects at the New Year’s press conference on 26 January 2017 in Berlin.

Four in one go – Ariane brings Galileo satellites into their orbits for the first time

17. November 2016

Antonianna, Lisa, Kimberley and Tijmen – those are the names of the four Galileo satellites launched on 17 November 2016, at precisely 14:06 CET, for the first time with a specially adapted version of the European heavyweight carrier Ariane 5 from the European spaceport in French Guiana.

Third STERN campaign – New altitude record for student rockets

8. November 2016

At 10:30 Central European Time (CET) on 8 November 2016, the HEROS3 (Hybrid Experimental Rocket Stuttgart) research rocket was successfully launched from the Esrange Space Centre in Sweden to great enthusiasm from the students. Reaching an altitude of 30 kilometres, it set a new European altitude record for student rockets.

Research on 'green' rocket propellants – symposium with experts from science and industry at DLR in Lampoldshausen

29. September 2016

The researchers at the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) Lampoldshausen site can look back on over 50 years of applied research at the M11 test facility. DLR's M11 test complex was built in the 1960s, and since then has been available for research and development in the area of rocket and ramjet engines.

New rocket test rig for safe Ariane 6 launches

2. June 2016

The future European launcher Ariane 6 will debut in 2020. In order for it to bring all its payloads safely to their orbits, the engines for the new launcher must first be extensively tested. To test the upper stage of the new launcher, a new test rig will be built at the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) site in Lampoldshausen.

Fourth Industrial Day – research and development for the space propulsion systems of tomorrow

9. March 2016

Spaceflight is undergoing significant change. To be successful in the long term, spaceflight must be actively developed, new markets have to be exploited, and the opportunities offered by innovative technologies need to be seized. Which space propulsion systems are visionary, which are realistic, and which are sustainable?
