Doors Open Day: Space and Satellites
Doors Open Day - Space and Satellites.
The University of Edinburgh is a Space University. Our researchers work in an extraordinary range of space-related activities: engineers are exploring the management of fire risk in space, and developing rocket fuel pods; chemists are developing clean-burn rocket fuels; and astronomers are tracking the skies for space debris.
The dedicated Space and Satellites Innovation Programme is pulling together a team of DDI Space and Satellites Chancellor's Fellows and Business Development Executives as well as consultants with the goal to establish Edinburgh as the Space Data Capital of Europe by 2030.
The Bayes Centre is the coordinating hub for DDI Space and Satellites activities. As such, here at Bayes, we are focussing on working with industry, governments, and NGOs to accelerate the translation of the University of Edinburgh's cutting-edge Space and Satellite research into social and economic impact.
