Space research

DTU explores the Earth, the solar system, and the universe. We map the Earth's land, sea and ice masses; measure gravity and the magnetic field; and investigate the solar wind and space weather conditions and their impact on our climate and environment. DTU develops precision instruments such as star cameras, magnetometers, and X-ray telescopes for use in space missions, and develops methods and techniques for processing data from satellite instruments.
