Emission-free, electric flight – DLR presents the HY4 research platform at the 2016 Hannover Trade Fair

Electrically powered, locally emission-free passenger aircraft are set to make the transport of the future more sustainable and flexible. They have the potential to bring electromobility to the skies in the coming decades, networking with ground-based transport carriers, and thus making travel faster and easier for passengers. Researchers at the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) are currently working with partners from industry and research institutions on the development of the HY4 test platform.

DLR at the Hannover Trade Fair: Intelligent wind turbines, efficient energy storage and 40 years of energy research

Using their knowledge and expertise in the field of aviation, researchers from #DLR have developed innovative ideas for wind turbine rotors. During the +Hannover Messe, which will take place from 25 to 29 April 2016, they will demonstrate how their intelligent rotor blades adapt to #wind loads. DLR is also focusing on #energy storage which is increasingly making use of renewable energy sources. DLR researchers are developing storage solutions for industrial use. These solutions could enable large amounts of energy to be stored in the form of heat. These new thermal energy storage systems will be presented at the Trade Fair.

In addition, DLR is celebrating its 40th anniversary of #energyresearch and is taking a look back at its successes and achievements in this field: http://www.dlr.de/40Years

DLR is celebrating 40 years of energy research

Forty years ago, prompted by the shocking rise in oil prices at the start of the 1970s, political and economic figures began to think about an energy supply other than oil, coal and uranium. #DLR began applying its expertise to #energyresearch and in 1976 #energy research was established as a secure, long-term research field.

To mark this aniversary, we will be publishing interviews with the people that helped to make this happen. For the latest interviews visit http://www.dlr.de/40Years

Premier homme dans l'espace, 55 ans qu'il a tourné autour de la terre. Il a ouvert le chemin de l'espace, pour les futures astronautes.
Il est resté 1 h 48 mn . Mission vostok 1 . Bravo à vous Youri Gagarine. Pour cette exploit .

40 years of DLR energy research: "No one would have understood decarbonisation in 1976"

This year, #DLR is celebrating 40 years of #energy research and reflects on the very first days with the protagonists. One of these is Carl-Jochen Winter, a hydrogen researcher who was involved from the very beginning.

In an interview with science journalist Tim Schröder, Winter talks about the beginnings of hydrogen technology and why this period was extremely exciting for developers.

A 'split' crater in Memnonia Fossae

The images presented here, acquired by the High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) operated by ‪#‎DLR‬ on board the +European Space Agency, ESA  ‪#‎MarsExpress‬ spacecraft, show part of the Memnonia Fossae region on ‪#‎Mars‬. This chain of faults is located to the west of the Tharsis volcanic region and north of Sirenum Fossae – another large system of rifts and faults similar to Memnonia Fossae. These features are all the result of tectonic stresses in the Martian crust and extend over 1600 kilometres in an east-west direction. Their origin is attributed to the bulging of the Tharsis volcanic region. They have been named the 'Rifts of Memnonia' after a temple complex in the ancient Egyptian city of Thebes.

Sentinel-1B – Second eye of the Earth guardian in orbit - Dual launch for European environmental satellite and MicroSCOPE small satellite mission

Two eyes are better than one; this principle is also true for the two radar satellites that make up the Sentinel-1 mission. On 25 April 2016 at 23:02 CEST, the Sentinel-1B Earth observation satellite lifted off from Europe's spaceport in French Guiana on board a Soyuz launch vehicle. Together with its twin satellite, Sentinel-1A, it will monitor landmasses and oceans, registering even small changes in the environment. The German contribution to this European Union (EU) and +European Space Agency, ESA mission is financed by #DLR Space Administration using funds provided by the German Federal Government. The French small satellite mission #MicroSCOPE – designed to test the equivalence principle underlying the General Theory of Relativity – was also on board.

Focusing on lightweight design and crashworthiness – DLR #transport researchers sign cooperation agreement with Canadian universities

To make the cars of the future lighter and at the same time safer, researchers from the Institute of Vehicle Concepts at #DLR have been working on new lightweight, hybrid design methods and innovative crashworthiness concepts. In order to network this pioneering research work internationally and increase its scientific visibility, the Stuttgart-based DLR Institute signed a cooperation agreement with the +University of Waterloo and the #UniversityofWindsor on 11 April 2016.

DLR Magazine 148/149 – From early communications satellites to swarm intelligence

As the title of this issue suggests, the first #DLRMagazine of 2016 takes a look back in time. This year, the DLR Institute of Communications and Navigation is celebrating its 50th anniversary. To commemorate this milestone, we delve into the world of invisible signals and antennas. DLR is also celebrating another anniversary - 2016 marks the 40th year of energy research conducted at #DLR. In addition to honouring these milestones, this issue also explores a number of previous key events in the belief that past experience helps to build a better future.
