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


On the 50th anniversary of Sputnik, individuals from around the globe gathered at BU’s CSP Conference Space Exploration to discuss the future of space exploration. This event was organized by Supriya Chakrabarti, Ph.D. and included individuals from MIT, BU, The National Security Space Office, Astronauts, former President of India, and more. See where we were ten years ago and how far we have come!
