  • Experiment carrier for the Einstein-Elevator
    An essential Component of the Einstein-Elevator at the Hannover Institute of Technology (HITec) is an experiment carrier, that is used inside the Einstein-Elevators gondola. In collaboration with the German Aerospace Center (DLR), the Institute for Transport and Automation Technology is developing a low-vibration carrier. The aim is to use the system to carry out various experiments under microgravity.
