DISCO Mission Patch
The Danish Student CubeSat Program DISCO reveals mission patch
Space may become the new Wild West
No state can lay claim to space. But adventurous billionaires and other private parties dreaming of space are currently challenging the treaties which have, until now, regulated obligations and rights in space. Researcher at SDU is helping to sort out the legal mess in space.
Danish students will launch their own satellite next summer
The Danish Students CubeSat Program, DISCO, will, in collaboration with the Danish company Space Inventor, launch its first satellite on a Falcon-9 rocket in the summer of 2022.
Astronomers Image Magnetic Fields at the Edge of M87’s Black Hole
The Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) collaboration, who produced the first ever image of a black hole, has revealed today a new view of the massive object at the centre of the M87 galaxy: how it looks in polarised light. This is the first time astronomers have been able to measure polarisation, a signature of magnetic fields, this close to the edge of a black hole. The observations are key to explaining how the M87 galaxy, located 55 million light-years away, is able to launch energetic jets from its core.
SDU intensify focus on space in SDU Galaxy
To ensure that students have the best skills to seize the opportunities available in the new golden age of space travel, the University of Southern Denmark bring together research and development in space and space-related technology in the SDU Galaxy network.
Will this solve the mystery of the expansion of the universe?
Physicists’ new proposal that a new type of extra dark energy is involved is highlighted in scientific journal.
Satellites to stop ammonia emissions
Ammonia is a growing environmental problem, but satellites can help the agricultural sector minimize emissions. A PhD student from SDU has been awarded the European Space Agency’s sustainability award for developing a system that uses satellites to measure the evaporation of ammonia from fields.
