Equipment for Mars mission on its way
As the official logistics partner of the Austrian Space Forum (OeWF), Gebrüder Weiss is transporting the mission equipment as well as 16 international science experiments to a test site in Israel. After the date had to be postponed last year due to the anti-pandemic measures, preparations for the transport from Austria to the Israeli Negev Desert are now underway.
With its international research partners, OeWF will carry out the simulated astronautical Mars mission “Amadee-20” from 4 to 31 October.
Young professionals at Gebrüder Weiss are taking an active role in organising the transport. Six specially trained OeWF analog astronauts will perform experiments from Austria, Germany, France, Israel, Italy, Portugal, Sweden, the United Kingdom and the USA. (sh)
