Supported space missions

Several space missions dedicated to fundamental physics (e.g., astroparticle physics and cosmology), in development or exploitation phase, are CERN Recognized Experiments and benefit to various extents of CERN support. In many cases the instruments have been calibrated using CERN’s particle beams. Sometimes CERN’s technologies and know-how are used in the payload, platform or ground segment.

Missions in exploitation phase:

Missions in development phase:

  • Euclid                  

Completed missions:

  • Planck                      

CERN supports or has supported also other space missions in exploitation phase, with space science, earth observation and/or educational purposes:

  • NUCLEON               
  • UNOSAT                  
  • PROBA-V                
  • LUCID
