How much power is there in the Sun? How warm does a cold thumb get when it touches a thermoelectric module? And what will the trains of the future look like? Visitors to German Aerospace Day at the German Aerospace Centre in Cologne on 18 September 2011 will have the opportunity to learn about DLR's work in the energy and transport research areas.
Anyone who has ever wanted to know what a combustion chamber test stand looks like from the inside, how a wind tunnel works or how big the Airbus A380 really is must come to German Aerospace Day.
'Encounter' a satellite in orbit, view the Moon and the Rhine Valley in 3D, board SOFIA, the airborne observatory, or visit the wind tunnel or astronaut training facility to experience the extreme conditions to which materials and people are exposed in space – these are just a few of the many space-related activities that DLR in Cologne will make available to the general public on 18 September 2011.
