Planetary Exploration profile
The Planetary Exploration profile is focused on objects in the Solar System and beyond: planets, moons and asteroids. The emphasis is on science, and its role in driving new space missions and in generating new knowledge from measurements of past and current space missions. Topics that are investigated in this profile are the structure, environment, and dynamics of the objects mentioned here. Your studies can include computer simulations based on analytical or numerical models but also on a variety of observations: in-situ, remote, and from deep space tracking. Therefore, instrumentation is a key element in this profile. As with the Spaceflight Dynamics profile, this profile has a strong theoretical component.
