NASA AND GERMAN AEROSPACE CENTER SIGN CIVIL SPACE AGREEMENTS

WASHINGTON -- NASA Administrator Charles Bolden and Chairman of the 
German Aerospace Center (DLR) Executive Board Johann-Dietrich Worner 
signed a framework agreement for cooperative activities in 
aeronautics, exploration and the peaceful use of space Wednesday at 
NASA Headquarters in Washington. The agreement is intended to enhance 
cooperation between the two agencies during the next decade. 

"NASA has a long history of successful cooperation with the government 
of Germany and an outstanding relationship with DLR," Bolden said. 
"Today's signing will further enhance our ability to work closely 
together in a variety of mutually beneficial activities in virtually 
every NASA mission area." 

The agreement sets forth the general terms and conditions for 
cooperation on a range of activities related to human spaceflight, 
exploration, aeronautics, global climate change and Earth and space 
science. 

"Many space missions and projects can only be carried out through 
international cooperation, for example, with NASA, because of their 
great complexity and the associated costs," Worner said. "This is why 
DLR, as Germany's national space agency and research center, is 
endeavoring to set up bilateral collaborations such as this." 

Bolden and Worner also signed an agreement making DLR a NASA Lunar 
Science Institute associate partner. The institute brings together 
scientists from around the world to conduct collaborative research in 
lunar science.
