About Hamburg Space Research is a student group from the Hamburg University of Technology currently working at a REXUS/BEXUS project.
Hamburg Space Research cover
Description We are a group of students from the Technical University Hamburg (TUHH) in Germany participating in the BEXUS 24/25 project of the REXUS/BEXUS programme. Our experiment will fly on BEXUS 25.
As one of eight groups, out of the current cycle, we were granted the unique chance to bring our experiment into the stratosphere to a height of approx. 25 km with the help of a stratospheric balloon.
Our experiment consists of permanent magnets with the goal to catch micro-meteoroids. Those micro-meteoroids we hope to catch are mostly made of iron and nickel and therefore magnetic.
Those findings are then analysed in laboratory conditions and we hope that we can make conclusions as of where those micrometeoroids are from or what they are made of.
We appreciate all the help we can get.
Thus, if you are a student of the TUHH or a sponsor interested in helping us out, feel free to contact us.

Remark: The REXUS/BEXUS programme is realised under a bilateral Agency Agreement between the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and the Swedish National Space Board (SNSB). The Swedish share of the payload has been made available to students from other European countries through the collaboration with the European Space Agency (ESA).
Experts from DLR, SSC, ZARM and ESA provide technical support to the student teams throughout the project. EuroLaunch, the cooperation between the Esrange Space Center of SSC and the Mobile Rocket Base (MORABA) of DLR, is responsible for the campaign management and operations of the launch vehicles.
