    Visualisation of the PtL Technology Platform (TPP)

    Vi­su­al­i­sa­tion of the PtL Tech­nol­o­gy Plat­form (TPP)

    March 15, 2023 
    With the Tech­nol­o­gy Plat­form PtL (TPP), DLR is clos­ing the tech­no­log­i­cal gap be­tween re­search and in­dus­tri­al pro­duc­tion of elec­tric­i­ty-based fu­els.

    Re­searchers at the DLR In­sti­tute of Aerospace Medicine in Cologne have now be­gun eval­u­at­ing more than 12,000 pas­sive ra­di­a­tion de­tec­tors made of small crys­tals lo­cat­ed through­out the two mea­sur­ing man­nequins. Read­ing out the in­for­ma­tion stored in these crys­tals cre­ates a three-di­men­sion­al im­age of the hu­man body that re­veals the over­all ra­di­a­tion ex­po­sure ex­pe­ri­enced by bones and or­gans in dif­fer­ent parts of the body dur­ing a flight to the Moon and back.

    VOL­CAN project

    March 9, 2023 
    Length: 00:01:24
    In the 'VOL avec Car­bu­rants Al­ter­nat­ifs Nou­veaux' (VOL­CAN) project, an Air­bus A321neo is fly­ing us­ing pure SAF in both en­gines for the first time. It is be­ing chased by the Ger­man Aerospace Cen­ter's (DLR) Fal­con 20E re­search air­craft, which mea­sures emis­sions and ice crys­tals in the ex­haust jet. In the fu­ture, the tar­get­ed use of SAF in con­trail re­gions could help to rapid­ly re­duce the cli­mate im­pact of avi­a­tion.

    Video: Re­search at mi­nus 269 de­grees Cel­sius: Unique fa­cil­i­ty at DLR Göt­tin­gen helps NASA search for life in space

    December 16, 2022 
    Length: 00:05:52
    Is there life on oth­er plan­e­tary bod­ies? Jupiter's moon Eu­ropa could pro­vide an an­swer to this ques­tion: it is be­lieved to har­bour an ocean of wa­ter be­neath its icy sur­face. But how might an ex­plo­ration mis­sion to the Jo­vian satel­lite be con­duct­ed with­out con­tam­i­nat­ing the land­ing site? To find out, re­searchers at the Ger­man Aerospace Cen­ter (Deutsches Zen­trum fuer Luft- und Raum­fahrt; DLR) in Göt­tin­gen have car­ried out in­ves­ti­ga­tions in a unique fa­cil­i­ty on be­half of NASA's Jet Propul­sion Lab­o­ra­to­ry (JPL).

    Video: DLR In­sti­tute of Aero­dy­nam­ics and Flow Tech­nol­o­gy - 'Danc­ing' he­li­copter helps re­duce noise

    December 2, 2022 
    Length: 04:23
    Re­searchers at the Ger­man Aerospace Cen­ter (Deutsches Zen­trum für Luft- und Raum­fahrt; DLR) in Göt­tin­gen have vi­su­alised the main cause of noise from a heavy­weight he­li­copter in flight. To do this, they con­duct­ed flight tests with a CH-53G of the Ger­man Armed Forces by let­ting the he­li­copter 'dance' close to the ground.

    On 16 Novem­ber 2022, NASA's Artemis I mis­sion blast­ed off to the Moon from Launch Pad 39B at NASA's Kennedy Space Cen­ter in Flori­da. The new SLS rock­et lift­ed off at 07:47 CET, car­ry­ing the Ori­on space­craft to­wards Earth’s nat­u­ral satel­lite. The mis­sion is ex­pect­ed to last 26 days. The Ori­on space­craft, whose ser­vice and propul­sion mod­ule is the Eu­ro­pean Ser­vice Mod­ule (ESM), pri­mar­i­ly built in Ger­many, will or­bit the Moon sev­er­al times. Al­so on board are two man­nequins from the Ger­man Aerospace Cen­ter (Deutsches Zen­trum für Luft- und Raum­fahrt; DLR) used to mea­sure ra­di­a­tion.
