In-depth research into the physics of a new type of plasma rockets for space missions and revolutionising their design. This is the aim of ZARATHUSTRA, a European ERC Starting Grant research project at the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) that aims to develop a new aerospace technology and whose results could also be applied in other fields,...
Millimeter wave Array at Room Temperature for INstruments in LEO Altitude Radio Astronomy
Millimeter wave Array at Room Temperature for INstruments in LEO Altitude Radio Astronomy (MARTINLARA- S2018/NMT-4333) develops a space mission for in-orbit demonstrations, integrating nanosatellites technologies for space use in radiostronomy, Earth observation, space photonics and electric space propulsion.
MARTINLARA mission will be the first satelite launched by Universidad Carlos III de Madrid.
It will enable to run observations of the Cosmological Microwave Background (CMB), as well as Earth observation to monitor the magnetic South Pole and applications for climate change forecasting.
