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".
On September 28, 1990, 30 years ago, the official first launch took place in the Bremen Drop Tower.

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.
Uneven blood flow occurs more often than fluid dynamics theory suggests. An international research team has now proven this theoretically and experimentally. Among them was ZARM scientist Duo Xu.

Today artist Oliver Chanarin used ZARM's microgravity lab to conduct a historic art experiment.
