ZARM scientist Dr. Dennis Philipp receives the Bremen Study Award 2020 for his outstanding disseration on the "Theoretical Aspects of Relativistic Geodesy", which lays the foundation for the rigorous and generally relativistic...
The fire safety experiment on CYGNUS has results that even the combustion researchers could not have predicted: in weightlessness, a flame tends to spread in the opposite direction to the air flow.
With the help of his Atmosphere Tester for Mars-bound Organic Systems (Atmos), Cyprien Verseux proved that Cyanobacteria can help astronauts survive self-sufficiently on Mars.
Scientists of SAFFIRE V look back on the CYGNUS flight with mixed feelings. One of the two experiments on board could not be started as planned whereas the other caused a surprise.
On 26.11.2020 the Senate of the DFG decided to establish the Collaborative Research Center "TerraQ", to which ZARM will contribute with subprojects.
For the project "Geodesy und climate research" ZARM - together with the University of Hannover and the DLR - have been awarded the "Norddeutscher Wissenschaftspreis 2020".
Within the last four years the Nobel Prize was awarded to gravitational physics three times - a proof of the great impact of this field of research.
Lift off for the Antares rocket on October 3, 2020. Also on board: an experiment on fire safety in human space flight designed by ZARM.
On September 28, 1990, 30 years ago, the official first launch took place in the Bremen Drop Tower.
Starting now, school students can apply for this year's German CanSat Explorer competition.
Since the end of April, ZARM has had animal offspring again: a pair of peregrine falcons has moved into the nesting box of the drop tower and is raising two healthy offspring there.
On 29 May 2019, ZARM was occupied by school students. On occasion of the "DroPs" outreach project, three Bremen school teams "dropped" their own experiments in the drop tower - like real scientists.
The first creation of a Bose-Einstein condensate in space is reported this week in Nature. ZARM scientists were involved in the MAIUS-1 mission, a poineering sounding-rocket experiment in the field of fundamental physics.
