A recent study by LTU Business estimates that the space cluster in and around the city of Kiruna in northern Sweden could double in size to reach a total of 50-70 actors and 1,000 employed in 10-15 years. The conclusion is based on an analysis of the cluster’s recent development, its location and conditions, as well as on global trends in the space industry.
Asteroids can be more porous than expected. In-situ measurements of the asteroid Ryugu suggest a mix of materials of various porosities originated in different places, possibly in different parts of a bigger planetary body. – Our findings might help future technological solutions to deflect asteroids from Earth, says Axel Hagermann, Professor of Atmospheric Science at Luleå University of Technology.
Luleå University of Technology has been selected European University. This means that a collaboration between five European universities has been granted five million euros to increase student mobility in Europe. The focus of the collaboration is education in space.
