Great job.

On 30 June, the #DLR MORABA mobile rocket base launched the MAPHEUS-5 high-altitude research rocket.

The 12-metre-high, two-stage rocket took off from the Esrange Space Center in Sweden carrying four DLR experiments on board. 

See what happened via this video showing #MAPHEUS-5 successful launch and recovery.

Bonjour +DLR, German Aerospace Center. Votre film est très nette depuis cette fuseé,agréable de voir la terre de très haut, pour les personnes sensible aux tournis, s'abstenir. Puis cette lente descente et de voir la terre se rapprocher et vraiment splendide. Merci .

Eleven Germans have experienced microgravity to date as #astronauts and #cosmonauts. Many experienced it on a single flight, others on several.

Want to know who they are: http://www.dlr.de/dlr/en/desktopdefault.aspx/tabid-10366/

Snapshots of the astronauts' time in space are available in our Flickr gallery: https://www.flickr.com/photos/129162924@N07/sets/72157656159638541

Add gravity ring to LEO station. I'm sending a giant code 16 to ISS and hope those bacteria building up outside the station don't mutate.

Headache for Philae

On 9 July 2015 at 19:45 CEST, #Philae reported back to the team at #DLR Lander Control Center (LCC) – only to then go back to 'silent mode'. Since then, the team has been working hard to get back in contact with the lander and operate it to conduct scientific measurements.

Landing a probe on a Comet is hardly a "headache" except for a German -- It is an extra-ordinary accomplishment for Mankind! Well done!

Churyumov-Gerasimenko: Almost like firn and shaped by 'hail'

On 12 November 2014, as the #Philae lander slowly descended onto Comet #67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, the first instruments on board began to take measurements. Philae touched down three times during the first ever landing on a comet, scraped against a crater rim, and finally arrived at the unforeseen landing site, called Abydos, at 18:31 CEST. "We would never have dared to attempt a landing in a terrain as rough as that at Abydos," explains DLR Philae project manager Stephan Ulamec. But, due to this, the instruments were able to conduct measurements at two different locations on the comet. The first ever recorded data acquired from the surface of a #comet.

These results will be published on 31 July 2015 in a special edition of the scientific journal Science.

Don't miss the International Aviation and Space salon MAKS 2015. #DLR will be exhibiting their work once again at this biennial event.

The airshow will be held in Zhukovsky, near Moscow, at the airfield of the country's central test base – Gromov Flight Research Institute​ (LII) from 25 - 30 August 2015. 

For more information visit the official MAKS website - http://www.aviasalon.com/en

Fertility deities on dwarf planet #Ceres

Acting on behalf of the +NASA#Dawn mission team, researchers from #DLR chose 17 of approximately 150 fertility deities to name the most prominent craters on Ceres, which they presented to the International Astronomical Union​ (IAU). These names were chosen because the #dwarfplanet bears the name of the Roman goddess of agriculture. Now, deities from five continents – from Hawaii's Haulani and Occator, the Roman god of the harrow, to the German goddess Gaue – populate the dwarf planet's extremely varied surface.

Technologies, outlook and life cycle assessments for electromobility – DLR and the Wuppertal Institute present the results of their study

#DLR teamed up with the Wuppertal Institute for #Climate#Environment and #Energy in the STROMbegleitung (electricity evaluation) study to analyse technologies, outlook and life-cycle assessments for electrically-powered #transport. The study comprehensively charts current progress in technology, identifies trends, and analyses life cycle assessments for a variety of vehicle concepts. At the same time, it places German activities in the field of #electromobility within an international context.
