The sky is no longer the limit for Busch Vacuum SolutionsMaulburg, )
With the help of this complex system, the landing of a rocket is simulated, and the surface of Mars and the Moon is imitated on the basis of different pressure levels. The surface of the Moon, for example, is in an ultra-high vacuum, and the surface gravity is only one sixth of that of the earth, which means that a human being would weigh only one sixth as much on the Moon as on the Earth. Parameters like this have an influence on the forces that act when a rocket lands on the surface of the Moon. And exactly these are simulated with the vacuum system. The change in the Moon's dust is captured and recorded by high-speed cameras.
Using the right vacuum technology was the key to achieving the ideal test conditions. The vacuum system from Busch Vacuum Solutions provides the perfect conditions and helps to support the research of future space missions. Image- source: www.istockphoto.com - 3DSculptor
