Picture of the Week
The kind of matter and energy we can see and touch – whether it is in the form of atoms and molecules, or heat and light, only forms a tiny proportion of the content of the Universe, only about 5%. Over a quarter is dark matter, which is totally invisible but whose gravitational attraction can be detected; while over two thirds is dark energy, a force that pushes the Universe to expand ever faster.
Space & Climate Physics (Mullard Space Science Laboratory)
The Department of Space and Climate Physics (originally opened as the Mullard Space Science Laboratory in 1967) and is now the largest university-based space research group in the UK. The department undertakes research in astrophysics, planetary sciences, solar physics, space plasma physics and climate extremes. This programme is underpinned by a comprehensive technology base that has led to MSSL-built instruments being flown by all of the major space agencies. Our postgraduate teaching programme reflects the quality and breadth of our research and technology programmes.
- There are no undergraduate programmes in Space and Climate Physics
- Graduate programmes (taught and research)
