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).

How does a comet smell? Since early August the Rosetta Orbiter Sensor for Ion and Neutral Analysis (ROSINA) is sniffing the fumes of the comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko
with its two mass spectrometers. The detected chemistry in the coma of the comet is surprisingly rich already at more than 400 million kilometres from the Sun.
