Research rocket TEXUS successfully launched with German experiments on board
On 1 December 2005, a research rocket deployed by the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and the European Space Agency (ESA), took off from Kiruna in northern Sweden at 10:04 CET. The launch was a successful continuation of the science programme TEXUS (the German abbreviation for Technological Experiments in Zero Gravity) operated by the two organisations. During the parabolic flight at a maximum height of 270 kilometres, there will be approximately six minutes of weightlessness on board the rocket. Scientists from German universities and from industry will be using this weightless environment to explore problems in biology, materials science and physics.
