UCL Department of Space and Climate Physics



As a department we think creatively about where and how the knowledge we generate can have a positive impact outside of academia. Our work with industry supports UK competitiveness, in space weather we support the national forecasting efforts and through our public, schools and media engagement we reach millions every year to share our passion for space research and engineering.

Our scientists and engineers are always excited to talk about their work and MSSL

Every year, our staff and students typically interact directly with almost 30,000 members of the public of all ages, through various events including primary & secondary school visits, public talks, and exhibitions. These events have covered aspects of astronomy and solar system science, missions, careers, and space history.
