Radar views of permanent ice for climate research – DLR research flights over Greenland

The Greenland ice sheet is, in places, more than three kilometres thick and a crucial feature in climate modelling. Scientists from #DLR, together with colleagues from +ETH Zurich​, are currently conducting tests of a new radar imaging process in a research flight campaign over Greenland. This technique will allow aerial measurements of three-dimensional snow and ice conditions at depths of up to 50 metres.

Siloe Patera – a supervolcano on Mars?

At present, the Siloe Patera construct in the Martian highlands is the cause of much debate among scientists. Is Siloe Patera actually the remains of a supervolcano? There is evidence to suggest this – but also evidence against it. It is a current example of an interesting geoscientific debate.

Satellites – a reliable source for Earth observation 

How is the ozone layer changing? What is the distribution of trace gases in Earth's atmosphere? How are forests, coastlines, landmasses and polar regions changing on a global scale? In what way can Earth observation satellites assist with the reaction to natural disasters such as the recent earthquake in Nepal, and how does their data benefit geology, agriculture, urbanisation, health and energy management? What techniques are available to process the ever-increasing volume of data?

These are the key topics at the 36th International Symposium on Remote Sensing of the Environment (ISRSE), which opened in Berlin on 11 May 2015.

+NASA's  Dawn spacecraft studied the #asteroid #Vesta in detail between 2011 and 2012. The application 'Vesta Trek' was developed and, using the data acquired, it allows us to explore Vesta’s surface from our very own home.

Curious? Start exploring right away! http://vestatrek.jpl.nasa.gov/

#‎ARCTIC15‬ is a campaign promoted by the Microwaves and Radar Institute of ‪#‎DLR‬, carried out in cooperation with +ETH Zürich and with the support of the Alfred Wegener Institute (AWI). It takes place in Greenland from mid-April to the end of May 2015 with the objective of collecting polarimetric-interferometric SAR data at different frequencies over different facies of the ice sheet.

Would you lie in bed for 60 days in the name of research? 

The second round of the long-term bedrest study (Langzeit-Bettruhe-Studie; RSL study) will start at :envihab in early January 2016. For this study, the DLR Institute of Aerospace Medicine is looking for healthy men between 20 and 45 years of age.

Are you interested? You will find more information (in German) about the study here: http://www.dlr.de/me/en/desktopdefault.aspx/tabid-7713/16004_read-40840/

How long does it take for a star to be born? Last year, a team under the leadership of scientists at the University of Cologne determined the precise age of a star-forming cloud using the data from the GREAT spectrometer on board the SOFIA airborne observatory.

Unforgettable moments with @Philae2014 and @ESA_Rosetta! 

#Rosetta: The whole story. On +BBC Future​: http://ow.ly/MN5Nd  

#CometLanding #67P #Philae

(DVE)
It was one of the most audacious space missions ever. How did it feel to be part of the Rosetta team as it touched down on a comet? As the spacecraft nears its closest approach to the Sun, Richard Hollingham recounts the drama, the disappointments and the jubilation of a 30-year quest.

First scientific campaign using the new Airbus A310 ZERO-G successfully completed

When the Airbus A310 ZERO-G landed at Bordeaux-Mérignac Airport at 12:35 CEST on 7 May 2015, after three days of flying, the first campaign using the new #parabolicflight‬ aircraft was successfully concluded. This first joint parabolic flight campaign by #DLR, +European Space Agency, ESA​, and +CNES marked the inauguration of the new A310 #ZeroG parabolic flight aircraft for experiments under altered gravity conditions. This makes the converted 'Chancellor Airbus' the new bridge for experiments heading for space. The eight German research projects in this campaign have the potential to become experiments on the +International Space Station
