    Researchers from the DLR Institute of Aerospace Medicine developed a carrier containing samples of bacteria and moulds and sent it into Earth's stratosphere on 23 September 2019 during the flight of a NASA Long-Duration Balloon (LDB).

    MARSBOx sample carrier back with the DLR microbiologists

    After its journey into Earth's stratosphere and subsequent landing in the USA, the MARSBOx, a DLR-developed carrier containing samples of bacteria and fungi, arrived at the DLR Institute of Aerospace Medicine in Cologne on 31 October 2019.

    Diagram of the airborne and ship-based measurements planned for EUREC4A. The low-altitude flight segments will map the cloud conditions and determine the mass balance of the layer of air beneath the clouds. The circular flights will document the large-scale conditions using dropsondes and record the underlying cloud field using remote sensing. Ship-based remote sensing will complement the aircraft measurements, while also conducting in-situ measurements using sensors attached to tethered balloons. EUREC4A will be the largest study yet to examine low-level clouds and their interactions with the atmosphere and ocean.
