From Graz into space? Yes, of course! The Graz Space Research Institute (IWF - Institut für Weltraumforschung) of the Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW - Österreichische Akademie der Wissenschaften) particpates in more than 20 international space missions. It develops and builds space-qualified instruments to measure, analyse and interpret what is happening high above our heads. The missions range from satellite fleets in near-Earth space to the observation of the Sun and the exploration of planets both inside and outside our solar system.
Visitors can find out how a mission works by taking part in one themselves in the Center of Science Activities (CoSA). With a little luck, they will solve one of the many puzzles in space and gain an exclusive view of the universe.
