Welcome to the Center for Space and Habitability

Recognizing the worldwide efforts underway to develop ground- and space-based infra-structure aiming at the characterization of exoplanets and the exploration of the solar system, and building upon the over 40 years of experience in the area of space research, the University of Bern has created the Center for Space and Habitability (CSH).
