Post German mission   Posted on: Wed Nov 07, 2007 3:48 pm
Just a few moments ago I found a new article under www.welt.de reporting about a future german lunar mission.

That german mission to the Moon is planned for 2012.

The DLR (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt) is working on the proposal of a german lunar probe orbiting the Moon at an altitude of 50 km.

The mission will be a component in an international cooperation but a significant step for the acceptance of german technologies.

There is no political decision about it yet. But the DLR has found that the mission is feasible and makes sense.

The first step is LEO - the „Lunar Exploration Orbiter“. May be that an Analysis-robot and a lunar lab will follow while a lunar far side radiotelescope might be possible in the far future only.

This all fits in the following thread also:

According to www-marssociety.de the mission is funded now. The DLR has agreed to funds of Euros 400 mio.

The mission may be ready to go to the Moon in four years but will not include no landing unit. It will last four years and create a threedimensional profile down to several hundred meters into the Moon-

The mission is cancelled now due to funding.

The german economics minister Glos didn't get the needed 350 million Euros.

According to www.marssociety.de the head of DLR, Wörner, is convinced that Germanswill land on the Moon. First there will be a german robot going there by one of NASA's first lunar missions.



What about it?

the Germans did go to space first so i think they proved them self's then. i wish them all the best, NASA have giving up on building their own craft for a while so Germany are the best hope for keeping everything moving.
