Space is the starting point for our activities. From there we explore the Earth and the universe using spacecrafts, aircrafts, satellites and drones. We develop technologies and instruments for that purpose.

DTU Space has more than 50 years of experience with space science. We are world leading in several fields due to an unique interaction between science, technology and applied research.

We employ 150 people. We work with private businesses and universities in Denmark and abroad. We advice public authorities. We educate space scientists and engineers (270 are currently studying here).

We have participated in more than 100 international space missions. We work with both ESA and NASA and a number of national space organizations and universities.
