Down close and personal: New project to run satellites nearer to Earth

Publication date:

A €5.7m project to develop technologies that will allow satellites to survive and operate at orbits closer to Earth than ever before – considerably lower than the international space station – has recently been launched. The project, led by the University of Manchester, is funded under the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme and will go a significant way to making satellites smaller, cheaper, dodge space debris and improve the quality of images they can send back. The Mullard Space Science Laboratory (MSSL), the Department of Space and Climate Physics of UCL, is a key participant in the project along with 8 other institutes from 7 European countries.
