Successful mission by sounding rocket MAXUS-9

Esrange launch site, North Sweden, April 7, 2017. At 11:30 local time, the noise of a launching rocket pierced the snow-covered landscape in the vicinity of the Esrange launch pad near Koruna in Northern Sweden. An unmanned MAXUS sounding rocket embarked on its ballistic flight, which took it to an altitude of 700 kilometers, where it provided weightless conditions for a period of 12 minutes. It was precisely this period of the flight that researchers were eagerly awaiting in order to perform the scientific and technological experiments which the rocket was carrying in its interior. On its 10th MAXUS mission, the rocket had a length of 15.5 meters and a launch mass of 12.3 tons. OHB System AG was again materially involved in the success of the mission.
