Planetary Surfaces and Spacecraft Lab

Learn More

The Planetary Surfaces and Spacecraft Lab is a computational and experimental lab interested in the intersection of planetary science, plasma physics, granular mechanics and spacecraft design. Dynamics and orbital mechanics are foundation upon which we explore the universe. We are interested in improving our understanding of the fundamental physics of phenomena and then using that knowledge to make predictions and designs.
