KTH scientists ready for NASA launch
As most of Sweden sleeps tomorrow night, two KTH scientists will be in Cape Canaveral watching NASA launch four spacecraft loaded with instruments they and their team created. The mission is to study the fundamental ways in which energy and material are transferred throughout the universe.
For KTH researcher, report of water vapor on Europa isn’t vindication - yet
The reported sighting of water plumes on Jupiter’s moon, Europa, appears to confirm observations made by KTH Royal Institute of Technology researcher Lorenz Roth three years ago. Nevertheless, the Swedish scientist remains skeptical.
NASA probe will help reveal how sun and planets interact
Beginning this year, NASA will launch four satellites equipped with technology from KTH Royal Institute of Technology. The mission: to study the microphysics of magnetic reconnection, the fundamental process that happens during such solar atmosphere events as solar flares and coronal mass ejections.
Robotics work leads researcher from Turkey to NASA
Like many international students, Alper Aydemir was expected to return home after graduation. But an offer from NASA led to a change in plans.
NASA to use KTH technology to study solar impact on Earth
When NASA launches four satellites next year to study the sun's impact on Earth's magnetic field, scientists will rely on engineering developed at KTH.
Researchers in final running to join NASA/ESA asteroid test
In 2022, NASA plans to ram a 300kg spacecraft into an asteroid, while an ESA-built space probe orbits the egg-shaped body and records the aftermath. A team that includes KTH researchers is among the final five that are competing for their CubeSat designs to be included in ESA's Asteroid Impact Mission (AIM).
