telemetrieNach dem heutigen Frühstück, welches von 9-10 Uhr stattfand, haben wir uns einen Vortrag über die Telemetrie angehört. In diesem Vortrag wurden uns recht simpel die verschiedenen Übertragungsformen erklärt. Des Weiteren wurde uns mit einen Amateurfunkgerät auf einem extra darauf zugeschnittenen Programm Positionen von Personen, welche zu dieser Zeit funkten, angezeigt.

graphicBevor wir uns zum Mittagessen die Bäuche voll schlugen, haben wir mit Amanda über Logos gesprochen. Sie erklärte uns den theoretischen Ablauf von Ideensammlung bis hin zur Umsetzung. Daraufhin haben wir uns ein Logo für unser Moonbuggyteam überlegt, allerdings konnten wir bisher nur Ideen sammeln, aber wir konnten uns noch nicht an die Umsetzung wagen. Da wir auch noch Logos für unsere Schul AG machen sollen, müssen wir diese Aufgabe zu Hause angehen.

moonbuggy-trainingNach einem einstündigen Mittagessen bis 12:00, haben wir uns wieder auf das Moonbuggy gesetzt, und sind zur Teststrecke gefahren. Heute sind wir allerdings nicht nur Kurven und über kleine Hügel gefahren, sondern konnten uns auch einmal am Sandkasten und an einem „steilen“ Berg probieren, wobei uns der Berg noch ein paar Probleme bereitet hat. Hier wird wohl noch einiges Training erforderlich sein, vor Allem für unsere Neueinsteiger.

minibuggyNach dem Training auf dem Buggy haben wir Minibuggys gebaut. Da wir keine vorgefertigten Achsen hatten, mussten wir uns diese schneiden und schleifen. Danach fingen wir an den kleinen Buggys zu basteln. Es war uns nicht in allen Schritten leicht gefallen, da man hier relativ gutes Feingefühl braucht. Nachdem wir mit dem Bauen der Buggys fertig waren, haben wir eine kleine Videoanleitung in 3 verschieden Sprachen aufgenommen und zwar in Deutsch, Spanisch, welche die Muttersprache von Araceli ist, und in Englisch.

Und jetzt gehen wir Abendbrot essen.

One year ago, the NASA scientist Jesco von Puttkamer died with the age of 79. The senior employee of the US Space Agency lost the battle to a flu virus in his home in Washington DC on the 27th of December, 2012. He left his wife Ursula.

Jesco von Puttkamer will not be forgotten as an author, speaker and 1960s TV guest, in Germanz and the U.S. The complete development of Apollo, Skylab, Space Shuttle, ISS and the strategic preparation for the mars mission have created his legacy within NASA and youth interested in space exploration. The mediation between ESA and Russia is in thanks to him. The list of awards is long. Among other things, the former engineer, von Puttkamer, received the honorary doctorate and the professorship, became the distinguished German-American of the year, 2008, and an asteroid was named after him. Above all, the NASA scientist, who didn’t have any of his own children, supported one thing: motivating youth to science.

On the 4th of February, 2013, NASA arranged a commemoration in the name of the engineer, scientist and visionary. A twenty man delegation of students and businessmen from Germany was invited to an extensive excursion.

On the 22nd of September, 2013, the 80th birthday of von Puttkamer, international colleagues and friends founded the “Jesco von Puttkamer Society” and donated a plaque at his birth house in Leipzig and at his former home on Monte Sano in Huntsville, Alabama. Beginning in 2014 and following each year, the society will donate an award to young and science students. In September 2014, the first Jesco von Puttkamer Readings will be held. International scientists and colleagues of von Puttkamer will inform the young generation and interested people about the future of space flight and its use for the progress.

The society keeps the Puttkamer network alive, honors the legacy of the scientist, supports young talents for natural science and is the first contact for giving names, prizes and awards in the name of von Puttkamer.

The Jesco von Puttkamer International Team Award is endowed with USD $1000 and will be given to international committed teams on the April 12th, 2014 at the NASA Rover Challenge in the Rocket City of Huntsville. The International Space Education Institute - Leipzig, an association launched in part by von Puttkamer, will judge the award.

Today, one year after the death of Jesco von Puttkamer, international students and engineers have a meeting in their workshop Together they prepare for the NASA Rover Challenge by developing a mars rover with non-pneumatic wheels and electronically supported pedals in the home city of Wagner, Porsche & BMW. The workshops are regularly continued in Moscow, Venice, Neu-Delhi and Huntsville, AL. With their work, they bring the memory of a committed scientist to the future.

Today, the digital rollout of the first NASA Rover takes place in the name of Jesco von Puttkamer in his birth town, Leipzig.

ussrcProf. / Dr. Jesco von Puttkamer would have been 80 years old on September 22nd.  He worked in Huntsville, Al after receiving invitation from Wernher von Braun to support the Apollo program beginning in 1962.  He had an office in the MSFC (known as the von Braun Hilton), calculated lunar orbits and planned the reusability of spacecraft . Later he headed a working group to repair the Skylab.  Since 1974 Dr. von Puttkamer moved to and worked at the NASA headquarters in Washington. There he helped plan and prepare the shuttle program and the construction of the ISS. He always was engaged in international cooperation with Russia.  He was responsible for orchestrating the visit of Sputnik designer Korolev's daughter to Huntsville in 2008.  But, his dream remained of Mars.  As a young science fiction author , NASA consultant for Star Trek and also of non-fiction books, Dr. von Puttkamer was published numerous times.  His last book, "The Millennium Project Mars" addressed a manned landing on Mars.

Since 2006 Dr. von Puttkamer came every year back to Huntsville, Al and supported the international league of teams participating in the annual NASA Moonbuggy Race.  During these returns, he would meet with U.S. students and international students at historical sites of the "von Braun team" in Huntsville.  These sites commemorate many who paved the way to the future and should not be forgotten.
