Tests of a technology demonstrator
Introduction to LOX / methane technology
A fuel combination comprising methane and liquid oxygen has an auspicious role to play in the development of new liquid rocket fuels for space. Already in 2016, extensive tests of a technology demonstrator took place at the DLR Lampoldshausen in cooperation with Airbus Safran Launchers. The LOX / methane technology is characterised by its re-usability and is more cost-effective than conventional engine technologies.
