Beyond Our Planet

Hear from our researchers about their work improving our knowledge and understanding of the planets, our solar system and beyond, out into the wider universe.

In this module, you can learn more about some of our staff and students who are working on topics linked to space. Their profile pages contain lots of information about them, including their research, inspiration, and their STEM heroes, as well as short interviews. Even more staff and students can be found within the main profile pages, demonstrating lots of different pathways and careers within this topic.
