Fallturm Bremen

Local nameFallturm
LocationBremen, Germany

Fallturm Bremen is a drop tower at the Center of Applied Space Technology and Microgravity at the University of Bremen in Bremen. It was built between 1988 and 1990, and includes a 122-metre-high drop tube, in which for 4.74 seconds, or for over 9 seconds weightlessness can be produced. The entire tower, formed out of a reinforced concrete shank, is 146 metres high.

The 122-metre drop tube is free-standing within the concrete shell, in order to prevent the transmission of wind-induced vibrations, which could otherwise result in the airtight drop capsule hitting the walls. The drop tube is pumped down prior to every free-fall experiment to about 10 Pa. Evacuation takes about 1.5 hours.
