C.R.O.P.® Agrar: Space technology for sustainable agriculture
25 June 2020
The C.R.O.P.® process (Combined Regenerative Organic food Production) makes it possible to process liquid manure into a high-quality fertilizer using a purely biological method. The use of this fertilizer instead of untreated liquid manure enables a more specific use of nutrients, so that soils and waters are relieved of a massive nitrogen input.
Wanted: Male Subjects for Muscle Study
15 September 2020
The Institute of Aerospace Medicine at the German Aerospace Center is looking for participants for a study on the connective tissue of the musculature. The aim of our MALICoT study is to improve the knowledge about the connective tissue of the muscles. The connective tissue is important for our daily activities. However, it is widely unknown how the muscle´s connective tissue is accomplishing this.

Myocardial regeneration through hypoxia in humans
30 January 2020
Cardiovascular diseases are the most common cause of death in highly developed industrial countries. A current research priority, known as regenerative medicine, is therefore intensively investigating whether and how it might be possible to induce heart muscle cells to divide (regenerate) in order to replace diseased tissue with new healthy tissue.
MARE - The MATROSHKA AstroRad Radiation Experiment
26 November 2019
In its complexity and in its international cooperation with numerous universities and research institutions in Austria, Belgium, Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Greece, Switzerland, Japan and the USA, MARE represents the largest experiment ever to determine the radiation exposure of astronauts beyond low Earth orbit. It provides basic data for estimating the radiation risk for future manned flights to the Moon.
TaFMAC: Study of master athletes at the World Masters Athletics Championships 2020 in Toronto
14 November 2019
As part of the 2020 World Master Athletics Championships, which will be held in Toronto from 20 July to 1 August, DLR will continue the MAFS18 study by investigating the health of master athletes on site.
MAFS-Study: Research on aging athletes at the World Master Athletics Championships in Malaga
20 August 2018
At the World Masters Athletics Championships in Malaga from 4-16 September 2018, the DLR Institute of Aerospace Medicine and the University of Malaga are conducting a field study with athletes on site. We want to collect data during the competition that are of interest for medical researchers as well as for the athletes. The focus this year is on age-related changes in skeletal muscle connective tissue, blood vessels, heart function, resting metabolism and psychological condition.
Eu:CROPIS - Tomato cultivation by satellite
27 June 2018
Astronauts must be supplied with breathing air, water and food in space. Closed life support systems are needed to "recycle" these vital resources and thus make them available for long-term use over several years. The DLR mission Eu:CROPIS (Euglena Combined Regenerative Organic Food Production in Space) tests the long-term stability of combined biological life support systems for missions to the Moon or Mars.
