KTH is Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. One of several research centers is KTH Space Center, which coordinates and strengthens space-related activities at KTH.

“KTH Space Center finds Beyond Atlas a very exciting, challenging and inspirational project, which we have supported from the very beginning. We look forward to the possibility of unique science as well as teaching projects for students.”

Warp Institute is a Swedish Foundation building the world’s largest community of optimists. Together with Beyond Atlas they are crowdfunding the two missions and are building a global space community.

ENPULSION is a Space Tech Start-Up based in Austria. It is the only entity worldwide offering FEEP thruster which was developed at FOTEC for more than 15 years in the frame of ESA science missions. This proprietary technology allows introducing extremely high total impulse capabilities in very small system volumes.

“We are very excited to be part of the Beyond Atlas Project. I believe that the ambitious goals combined with the vast experience of the team are creating a profound basis for long-lasting success. We are proud to enable this success with our technology providing the most advanced FEEP thruster to the spacecraft.”

TU Delft’s mission is to make a significant contribution towards a sustainable society for the twenty-first century by conducting groundbreaking scientific and technological research which is acknowledged as world-class, by training scientists and engineers with a genuine commitment to society, and by helping to translate knowledge into technological innovations and activity with both economic and social value. As a cross-faculty institute, the TU Delft Space Institute bundles and creates expertise on Space for local, regional, and global impact on research, education, and valorization.

“The TU Delft Space Institute feels that Beyond Atlas is a very interesting mission with great challenges. We believe this mission will boost the applications of low-cost nanosatellites and CubeSats, promote Planetary Exploration, and inspire the young generation to devote themselves to space.”

Uppsala University is the Nordic region’s oldest university – founded in 1477 – and is ranked among the top 100 universities in the world. There are more than 40,000 students here and they are seen, heard and make their mark everywhere. The University’s nearly 5,000 researchers and teachers conduct world-leading research and offer a seemingly endless number of courses.

Among the University’s alumni there are 15 Nobel Prize laureates, of which 8 received their prizes for discoveries made during their time at Uppsala University.

Uppsala University is divided into three disciplinary domains: humanities and social sciences, medicine and pharmacy, and science and technology. These in turn consist of nine faculties and nearly 50 departments in total.
