ISM offers the building blocks for a new global space industry. The programme aims to generate a talent pool of highly skilled engineers and innovative entrepreneurs who will be able to create, shape and sustain leading commercial space enterprises and play an important role in the economy of the future.

 

On the new website you can find all relevant information related to the Interdisciplinary Space master such as: application process details, facilities and laboratories, profiles of professors and experts.

The website was launched just in time for Asteroid Day.

 

Asteroid Day is the official United Nations' day of global awareness and education about asteroids, their importance in our history, and the role they play in our solar system. Co-founded by astrophysicist and musician Brian May, Asteroid Day is organised by the Asteroid Foundation, a Luxembourg-based non-profit organization. 

SnT was among the partners of this year’s Asteroid day. The event aims at raising awareness around asteroid research, this year featured topics such as the acceleration in the rate of asteroid discoveries, the imminent arrival of samples from asteroid Ryugu and Bennu, the exciting preparations for the joint US-Europe mission to binary asteroid Didymos, and much more.
