On 22 May 2009, the DLR research rocket Mapheus-01 (Materialphysikalische Experimente unter Schwerelosigkeit – material physics experiments in weightless conditions) lifted off at around 12:32. On board were components that were made by the former DLR apprentice and current mechanical technician Stefan Ratke.
