DHL's space adventure

Share this content:

DHL is expanding upon its usual shipping services and making a foray into scientific discovery. 

The company teamed with Germany's "Youth Research", the largest youth competition in Europe for natural sciences, mathematics and technology, and the German Aerospace Centre (DLR), to establish whether model packages of same size but varying weights will travel at the same speed under zero gravity conditions.

On October 12, DHL will load a Russian Soyuz rocket with the experiment in DHL packaging to the International Space Station.

Prior to the launch, on September 12, thirteen young scientists were meeting up in the DHL Innovation Center in Bonn to predict the result of the space trial using physical-mathematical calculations.

DHL will present the students that come closest to predicting the results of the experiment with a scholarship for their further education.
