    At the DLR In­sti­tute of Sys­tem Ar­chi­tec­tures in Aero­nau­tics in Ham­burg-Finken­werder, a team of in­dus­tri­al de­sign­ers is in­ves­ti­gat­ing how peo­ple will want to trav­el in the fu­ture, how their trav­el be­haviour might change as a re­sult of the COVID-19 pan­dem­ic, and what im­pact this will have on the de­sign of air­craft. Dig­i­tal sketch­es graph­i­cal­ly rep­re­sent the idea pro­cess and can be eas­i­ly shared elec­tron­i­cal­ly.

    Dig­i­tal sketch­es graph­i­cal­ly rep­re­sent the idea pro­cess and can be eas­i­ly shared elec­tron­i­cal­ly. In this de­sign, par­ti­tions be­tween the seats pro­vide more pri­va­cy. A new way of stow­ing lug­gage could speed up the board­ing pro­cess and thus short­en queues.

    DLR and NASA be­gin new se­ries of tests for plant cul­ti­va­tion on the Moon and Mars: On­line press con­fer­ence with live con­nec­tion to the EDEN ISS Antarc­tic green­house On Tues­day, 4 May 2021, the in­ter­na­tion­al team at the EDEN ISS Antarc­tic green­house will ap­pear in a joint on­line press con­fer­ence to kick off a new over­win­ter­ing mis­sion via YouTube livestream. Un­til the end of 2021, NASA guest sci­en­tist Jess Bunchek will re­search how as­tro­nauts on fu­ture Moon and Mars mis­sions could grow veg­eta­bles and herbs us­ing as lit­tle time and en­er­gy as pos­si­ble. To this end, she will be work­ing at the EDEN ISS Antarc­tic green­house of the Ger­man Aerospace Cen­ter (DLR) for the next few months, where she will put green­house tech­nolo­gies and plant va­ri­eties to the test. She is al­so record­ing any ef­fects the green­house and its yield have on the iso­lat­ed hi­ber­na­tion crew in the per­pet­u­al ice. Bunchek is part of the 10-per­son over­win­ter­ing crew on Neu­may­er Sta­tion III, op­er­at­ed by the Al­fred We­gen­er In­sti­tute, Helmholtz Cen­tre for Po­lar and Ma­rine Re­search (AWI).

    Air­craft ca­pa­ble of fly­ing in the strato­sphere are at­tract­ing in­creas­ing in­ter­est in re­search and in­dus­try be­cause of their ex­ten­sive ap­pli­ca­tion po­ten­tial. Ac­quir­ing com­pre­hen­sive sys­tems ex­per­tise for high-al­ti­tude air­craft is the goal of the DLR cross-sec­toral 'High-Al­ti­tude Plat­form' (HAP) project.
