Psyche – Journey to the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter
<img align="right" alt="" src="">The asteroid 16 Psyche is the target of the NASA Discovery Programme's 14th mission. The eponymous robotic mission will be launched in 2023 and will explore a metallic asteroid for the first time in order to gain further knowledge about the formation of the Solar System and especially about the structure and development of planetary bodies.<img src="" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

When and how is investing in a solar power plant worth it?
<img align="right" alt="Solarkraftwerk Khi Solar One in Südafrika" src="">Scientists from the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR), together with partners, have compiled a guide to calculate the yield from a solar power plant. For the first time, the guideline offers comprehensive and standardised calculation bases within the solar thermal industry that meet the high requirements of project financing.<img src="" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

New taxiway to optimise traffic at Zurich airport
<img align="right" alt="Der Apron- und Tower-Simulator (ATS) am DLR-Institut für Flugführung in Braunschweig ist Teil des Validierungszentrums Luftverkehr." src="">Zurich airport is divided into two sections by an active runway. This centrally located runway has to be crossed by most of the arriving and departing aircraft. With the 'Rerouting runway 28' project, aircraft will use a new taxiway east of the runway, thereby considerably reducing the number of crossings to further increase safety. But can this new taxiway be operated smoothly?<img src="" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Sleepless at DLR – Fatigued in the interest of research
<img align="right" alt="" src="">The alarm clock rings mercilessly at 07:00 sharp. Get up, shower, breakfast! Half asleep after a night that was far too short, we make our way to work in the midst of rush hour traffic and do not feel fully awake until after the second cup of coffee. Does that sound familiar?<img src="" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

2016 at DLR - A timely discovery, popcorn floating in the sea and a visit by the German Chancellor
<img align="right" alt="Das Forschungsflugzeug HALO im norwegischen Kiruna" src="">A test simulating crashes between high-speed trains, hunting for clouds in West Africa, the maiden flight of a four-passenger fuel cell aircraft – 2016 at the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) has been a year of numerous research highlights.<img src="" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Working on the eternal ice: DLR's GARS O'Higgins Antarctic station turns 25
<img align="right" alt="Früher hat die DLR-Empfangsanlage Informationen aus dem All empfangen. 25 Jahre später werden selbst bei extrem stürmischem Wetter Informationen an Satelliten gesendet." src="">14,205 kilometres from Berlin, storms rage across the Antarctic Peninsula at speeds of up to 250 kilometres per hour. Perched on the northern tip, the German Antarctic Receiving Station GARS O'Higgins, operated by the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) has defied these conditions for 25 years, operating a nine-metre antenna and staffed by a small team 365 days of the year.<img src="" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Flying around wake vortices – new system tested in flight trials
<img align="right" alt="Das DLR-Forschungsflugzeug A320 ATRA (Advanced Technology Research Aircraft) ist eine moderne und flexible Flugversuchsplattform, die nicht nur größenmäßig einen neuen Maßstab für fliegende Versuchsträger in der europäischen Luftfahrtforschung setzt." src="">When aircraft are in flight, vortices are generated behind them from the wing tips. These are known as wake vortices, and they can have safety implications for following air traffic. The German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) has now tested the improvement of a wake vortex avoidance system in flight tests.<img src="" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Colossal crater on dwarf planet Ceres
<img align="right" alt="" src="">The Occator crater on the dwarf planet Ceres is a real eye-catcher: with a diameter of 92 kilometres, it is larger than Tycho crater on the Moon – which appears like a bright spot when seen with the naked eye. The Occator crater's steep walls stand tall at over 2000 metres, higher than the North face of the Eiger in the Bernese Alps.<img src="" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>
