Lost in Space

Welcome to everything on our homepage that is space related.

Below, you find a collection of pictures of trips we took to space and astronomy sites.

In addition, Volker works on a couple of space related projects:

Space Pictures

A collection of photographs taken by space probes visiting our solar system from Mercury to Pluto.
First Satellites

So far, 92 countries have launched satellites. This is a list of every country's first object in space with links to more information.
Spaceflight Firsts

A listing of all pioneering events in spaceflight. From the first rocket to the first moonwalk to probes leaving the solar system.
Animal Astronauts

A listing of the animals that paved the way for human space flight. From fruit flies in a V2 rocket to two brave mice in a Polish meteorological rocket surviving a force of 20g.
Star Lore

A rather large project, trying to create a database of legends told about stars and constellations around the world.

All of these projects are still works in progress and most of them are not yet available in German.

Below are some pictures of our own space adventures.

Moon eclipse over our house, February 20, 2008

Visit to Meteor Crater, Arizona. On display here are a piece of a giant meteor and a model of an Apollo capsule.
With a little bit of editing, we turned Julia's and Volker's earlier visit to the same place into a moonwalk.

Visit to Alamogordo Space Park in New Mexico.
Amongst other things, the park displays a Mercury capsule and pieces of an old German V2-Rocket.

Lick Observatory is the home of America's oldest telescope. This amazing place is only two hours from home and we visited it in 2009. Before you ask, the picture in the middle is not our's but NASA's.

Volker is not the only space buff in the family.

In June 1010, a model of a European Ariane-Rocket was on display in Berlin, and Volker's brother Steffen went there to see it.
