1 Space Science Project Funding by the German Space Agency (German Aerospace Center, DLR) Werner Klinkmann, DLR Space Agency, Bonn

2 Raumfahrt-Agentur, Seite 2 The Space Agency Defining German space planning on behalf of the federal government Representing German space-related interests in the international arena, in particular vis-à-vis the ESA Tendering, award and support of space projects in the context of the National Space Program

3

4 Space Science - Subjects Exploration of the Solar System sun, planets, moons, asteroids, comets, interplanetary medium,... Astronomy, Astrophysics, Astroparticlephysics observation in all spectral ranges, gravitational waves, cosmic particles,... Fundamental Physics test of fundamental laws, relativity (equivalence principle),...

5 The German Space Science Programme 1. Participation in the ESA Programme 2. National (bi- und multilateral Projects) 3. Basic Programme

6 Budget (National Programme, ESA Programme)

7 1. Participation in the ESA Programme The ESA Space Science programme is (the only) Mandatory Programme, other Programmes are Optional! Financial contributions according to Gross National Product: ca. 22% from Germany ESA ist responsible for Satellite Bus, Launch, Mission, etc. The National Agencies are responsible for Provision and Funding of the Scientific Instruments DLR delegates are German Representatives in ESA Decision Boards (SPC,...)

8 Agencies SSAC Space Science Advisory Committee AWG Astronomy Working Group FPAC Fundamental Physics Advisory Committee DLR Space Science SPC Science Programme Committee Programmausschuss Extraterrestrik German Delegations SSWG Solar System Working Group Advice by Science Community Other involved ESA Boards: IPC (Industrial Policy Com.) IRC (Intern. Relations Com.) AFC (Admin. and Financ. Com.) DLR Other Departments Decision Process in the ESA Space Science Programme

9 The ESA Space Science Programme in a nutshell a) Missions in Operation Rosetta [2004]Mission to comet Churyumov - Gerasimenko SMART-1 [2003]Technology Mission to the moon Mars Express [2003]Mars Exploration INTEGRAL [2002]INTErnational Gamma-Ray Astrophysics Laboratory Cluster [2000]Magnetospheric mission XMM-Newton [1999]X-ray Multi-Mirror Satellite Cassini-Huygens [1997]Mission to Saturn / Landing on Titan SOHO [1995]SOlar Heliospheric Observatory Hubble [1990]Space Observatory Ulysses [1990] Solar Mission around the Poles Venus Express [2005]Venus Orbiter

10 The ESA Space Science Programme in a nutshell b) Projects in Development Herschel [2008]FIR - Space Observatory Planck [2008]Analysis of the Cosmic Microwave Background LISA-Pathfinder [2009]Technological Preparations for LISA JWST [2013] James Webb Space Telescope, IR-Observatory BepiColombo [2013]Mercury Orbiter Gaia [2011]Global Astrometry LISA [2018]Laser Interferometer Space Antenna, Detection of gravitational waves

11 The ESA Space Science Programme in a nutshell c) Projects in Selection Selection within Cosmic Vision Programme starts this year. Candidates: Solar OrbiterObservation of the Sun XEUS X-ray Evolving Universe Spectroscopy, DarwinMid-IR-Interferometer for Imaging of extrasolar planets... (in total about 60 proposals)

12 2. National (bi- and multilateral Projects) Jointly Missions with other Agencies e. g. NASA(SOFIA, Chandra), Roskosmos (eROSITA), CNES (Corot, Microscope) Agreement with Agencies (Memorandum of Understanding, Letter of Intent, Letter Agreement)

13 3. Basic Programme Technological Studies Verbundforschung Astronomy/Astrophysics: funding of the scientific data evaluation from selected space observatories (which have a significant German contribution) - HST - XMM - Integral - Herschel Introduced 1989 together with Verbundforschung for Earth-borne Observations

14 Implementation of the Space Science Programme Decision on new Projects within political boundary conditions, in coordination with scientific community (Programm-Ausschuss), evaluation of proposals by advisory board Awarding grants to scientific institutes and contracts to industry Monitoring of the Projects Evaluation by Reviews
