Bringing together Researchers, Students and Industry to Explore Space.

Leaders in Space Science

Earth as seen from space.

The Lowell Center for Space Science and Technology gathers today’s leaders in space science to study and understand interactions between Earth and the solar system and beyond. We focus our collaborative research efforts on the following:

  • Science about space such as characteristics of Earth, planets, stars, galaxies and regions in between
  • Science from space such as remote sensing
  • Technology such as instrumentation, systems, control, communication, operations and data analysis

Massachusetts Alliance for Space Technology & Sciences (MASTS)

With a new award of nearly $5.5 million from the Healey-Driscoll Administration and the Innovation Institute at MassTech, LoCSST will establish the Massachusetts Alliance for Space Technology & Sciences (MASTS), a new research hub focused on space technology. This consortium of research universities, colleges, and corporations from across the globe, will be led by UMass Lowell. The funds will enable the development of a one-stop support system for innovators working on small spacecraft.
