German Aerospace Center (DLR)
Take a look behind the scenes of the national research centre for space travel.
The German Aerospace Centre is the national research centre for space travel. They run 20 sites across the country, and the one in Bremen is open to visitors. Since 2007, the Bremen site has been home to the Institute of Aerospace Systems.
The Institute of Aerospace Systems is responsible for designing, analysing and assessing future spacecraft and space travel missions in terms of their technical performance and costs. These include carrier systems, orbital flight systems, space exploration systems and satellites. The institute also develops, builds and operates its own spacecraft and missions in order to conduct scientific experiments and demonstrate technology. To safeguard future missions into space and to improve the performance of existing technologies, the institute is conducting research into system-relevant technologies.
Behind the scenes at the German Aerospace Centre
On a guided tour of the institute's laboratory buildings, you will find out about the latest projects. Discover why we want to grow tomatoes on the moon and on Mars, how landing vehicles are able to land on an asteroid and how ships can be monitored from outer space.
The tour also gives you a sneak peek inside some of the laboratories and test facilities: the integration hall where the satellites are assembled, the landing and mobility test facility (LAMA) where the famous Philae lander was once tested, and even the cryo lab where tests are carried out to investigate the cryogenic treatment of fuels. Immerse yourself in the world of space travel and discover the important part that Bremen plays in it.
