Virtueller Kontrollraum

Data of the Rosetta spacecraft and space station experiments MSL

The Microgravity User Support Center (MUSC) of DLR in Köln-Porz

The „Virtual Control Room“ is a feature on the DLR Website, where you will have access to telemetry data for the Missions ROSETTA and EXPOSE (ISS), coming straight from the control rooms of the Microgravity User Support Center (MUSC). This allows you to follow these missions.

In the context of the Rosetta mission, a scientific probe is accompanied and examined the comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko. The highlight of the mission was the landing of the small piggyback probe Philae onto the comet’s surface. The MUSC houses the Lander Control Center (LCC). The Philae team at LCC is responsible for the control and operation of the lander.

In the trays of the EXPOSE payload, different organisms and organic-chemical compounds are exposed to the extreme environmental conditions of open space to test their survivability; meanwhile, the intensity and composition of incoming radiation is measured.

The “Virtual Control Room” will be extended with further missions and applications.
