Planetary Science


From the Comet Wild2 nucleus to electron diffraction patterns on the samples returned, the Space Research Centre is analysing these and other parts of the Solar System.

The Space Research Centre is at the forefront of a wide range of new planetary science projects.  We design instruments to look for life on Mars and we also study samples returned from comets and meteorites from Mars , the Moon and asteroids.
