At the UNH Space Science Center, we pursue research excellence in understanding both near-Earth space and the distant universe through mission leadership, data analysis, instrument development, theory, and simulation.

From space plasma physics to rocketship instrumentation, our research and graduate education ranges from the ionosphere to the Earth's magnetosphere, from the local solar system and out to the farthest reaches of the universe. 

Space: Let's explore it together.
