Space Research & Education

For decades, the Faculty of Science has been pushing the boundaries of space research and education, transcending the "Sky's the Limit."

With strength in microgravity science and planetary environment, astronomy and astrophysics, planetary materials science, and space physics and space environment, many science faculty, students, and alumni are major players on this out-of-this-world stage, serving critical roles on international missions and initiatives with, amongst others, NASA, the Canadian and European Space Agencies, and even the United Nations.

Through unique research and educational opportunities as well as involvement with the Institute for Space Science Exploration and Technology (ISSET), the Faculty of Science continues to build on long-standing excellence in space research to take advantage of emerging, cross-disciplinary opportunities, developing partnerships with other institutions, agencies, and industry.
