Close collaboration in optical communication between space and Earth

An exchange of knowledge and scientists across borders, joint research projects and workshops – with the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding on 16 April 2014, the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) and the Japanese National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) are strengthening their cooperation in the crucial research area of optical satellite-Earth communication. "NICT is not an unknown partner to us, and we are delighted that the already existing collaboration will become even stronger in the future," stated DLR Executive Board Chairman Johann-Dietrich Wörner.

HI-SEAS mission - First week ‘on Mars’

We have already spent one week ‘on Mars’ and yet it feels like we arrived yesterday. Our ‘landing’, during the night of Friday 28 March, was quite tumultuous, with an arrival at sunset in pouring rain, strong winds and a temperature of about 10 degrees Celsius… like an actual Martian sandstorm. We unloaded all our luggage and proceeded to the last interviews with journalists from the University of Hawaii – in the rain. “Good luck and see you in four months!” said Kim Binsted as she exited the habitat. And our mission had begun!

Why do astronauts' immune systems become weakened?

 DLR sends two biomedical experiments from the University of Magdeburg to the ISS. Also on board – NASA cameras for Columbus Eye, the DLR student experiment.

Everything is different in space. Every cell in our body seems to be aware of the lack of gravity and our bodily functions change. Spending time in space also weakens astronauts' immune systems. Researchers at the University of Magdeburg want to find out why with two experiments organised by DLR Space Administration that will be conducted on the International Space Station (ISS). Two cell cultures were launched to the ISS on board a Dragon spacecraft operated by US company SpaceX from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida, at 21:25 CEST (15:25 local time) on 18 April 2014.

Wake turbulence – DLR tests warning system in flight experiments

When in flight, aircraft generate turbulence behind them known as wake vortices, which can affect the air traffic that follows. The German Aerospace Center (DLR) is currently testing a wake turbulence warning system in flight experiments using its ATRA and Falcon research aircraft. The system can predict potentially dangerous wake turbulence using just the positional data and weather information from a preceding aircraft.

DLR and NASA sign agreement for testing of alternative fuels in joint research flights

The German Aerospace Center (DLR) has entered into an agreement with the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to conduct a series of joint research flights. During the flight tests, which will be headed by NASA, the emissions properties of alternative fuels and their effects on the climate and atmosphere will be studied. DLR will participate with its Falcon research aircraft in the approximately two-week-long air campaign. The start of the joint test flights as part of the ACCESS II (Alternative Fuel Effects on Contrails and Cruise emission) project is scheduled for 7 May 2014. The starting point for the flights will be the NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center in Edwards, California.
