Surfing Back To Earth
How did life actually form on Earth? Even today this question still has not been definitively answered. There are, however, signs that asteroids or comets played an important role. In the search for additional clues, space probes fly to these celestial bodies and collect samples. The capsules that return the material must withstand re-entry into the Earth’s atmosphere undamaged. Ensuring that this happens is the goal of the Hades project, which is sponsored by Faulhaber. In future, FAULHABER linear motors will help stabilise the movement of the capsules to ensure a smooth re-entry into the Earth’s atmosphere, thus preventing their destruction.
