  • Silbervogel
    Silbervogel, German for silver bird, was a design for a liquid-propellant rocket-powered sub-orbital bomber produced by Eugen Sänger and Irene Bredt in the late 1930s for The Third Reich/Nazi Germany.
  • TerraSAR-X
    TerraSAR-X, a radar Earth observation satellite, is a joint venture being carried out under a public-private-partnership between the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and EADS Astrium.
  • V-2 rocket
    The V-2 (German: Vergeltungswaffe 2, "Retribution Weapon 2"), technical name Aggregat 4 (A4), was the world's first long-range guided ballistic missile.
  • Compton Gamma Ray Observatory
    The Compton Gamma Ray Observatory (CGRO) was a space observatory detecting light from 20 keV to 30 GeV in Earth orbit from 1991 to 2000.
  • STS-55
    STS-55 (Space Transportation System 55), or D-2 was the 55th overall flight of the US Space Shuttle and the 14th flight of Shuttle Columbia.
  • RapidEye
    RapidEye AG was a German geospatial information provider focused on assisting in management decision-making through services based on their own Earth observation imagery.
  • Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment
    The Gravity Recovery And Climate Experiment (GRACE), a joint mission of NASA and the German Aerospace Center, has been making detailed measurements of Earth's gravity field anomalies since its launch in March 2002.
  • STS-61-A
    STS-61-A (also known as D-1) was the 22nd mission of NASA's Space Shuttle program.
  • TanDEM-X
    TanDEM-X (TerraSAR-X add-on for Digital Elevation Measurement) is the name of TerraSAR-X's twin satellite, a German Earth observation satellite using SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) - a modern radar imaging technology.
  • Soyuz TM-14
    Soyuz TM-14 was the 14th expedition to the Mir space station.
  • Solar Anomalous and Magnetospheric Particle Explorer
    The Solar Anomalous and Magnetospheric Particle Explorer (SAMPEX) was a NASA solar and magnetospheric observatory, and was the first spacecraft in the Small Explorer program.
  • MW 18014
    MW 18014 was a German V-2 rocket test launch that took place on 20 June 1944, at the Peenemünde Army Research Center in Peenemünde.
  • Hopper (spacecraft)
    Hopper was a proposed European Space Agency orbital and reusable launch vehicle.
  • ABRIXAS
    A Broadband Imaging X-ray All-sky Survey, or ABRIXAS was a space-based German X-ray telescope.
  • TET-1
    TET-1 (German: Technologieerprobungsträger 1, Technology Experiment Carrier) is a microsatellite operated by the German Aerospace Center.
  • Helios (spacecraft)
    Helios-A and Helios-B (also known as Helios 1 and Helios 2), are a pair of probes launched into heliocentric orbit for the purpose of studying solar processes.
  • Oberpfaffenhofen
    Oberpfaffenhofen is a village which is part of the municipality of Weßling in the district of Starnberg, Bavaria, Germany.
