DLRmagazine 150 – Eyes in the sky see the world changing

The world is changing in ways that our human eyes are not able to completely observe. Satellites see it all and reveal what, cannot be hidden: damage caused by natural forces or the impact of human violence on the World Heritage Site of Palmyra, for instance. Science expands our field of view, and the DLRmagazine bears witness. In this edition, we learn more out about solar storms and their effects on daily life on Earth. Issue 150 provides information on current contributions to climate protection such as lightweight designs for aircraft and automobiles that produce fewer emissions and a cooperation with Rolls-Royce for environmentally friendly aircraft engines. Research into eco-efficient flying will also be showcased at the International Aerospace Exhibition, ILA 2016, in Berlin. We are pleased to welcome you to our stand, where you will learn about these research results first hand. This year, ILA celebrates Otto Lilienthal and his 'Normalsegelapparat'. 125 years after the first human flight, experience the aircraft that inspires scientific curiosity and brings new knowledge to light on display at ILA. You can also find an in-depth article on Lilienthal in this issue of DLRmagazine.

As always, you can subscribe to receive the DLRmagazine by post, free of charge.
