The next step in spaceflight, among others, is the development of a reusable launch vehicle (RLV) suitable for manned missions. All existing designs of re-entry vehicles are either ballistic or low L/D vehicles. In the future, the aim is to develop a high L/D vehicle, because such vehicles experience lower g-loads, making the flight comfortable...

The first close-up image of a black hole has been taken recently by means of a network of high-resolution telescopes situated all around the globe, also known as Event Horizon Telescope (EHT). In that regard, this Master Thesis reviews the feasibility of establishing accurate inter-satellite baselines in a two-satellite constellation of...

The gravity field changes associated with the earthquake are analysed using the GRACE (Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment) data. GRACE data can track the temporal variations in the gravity field and therefore information on mass redistribution can be achieved. There have been many studies already carried out using the GRACE data to analyse...

Autonomously landing a spacecraft on the surface of a planetary body with a degree of precision in the order of meters is highly challenging. Over the course of time, the landing ellipse, defined as the region with a 99% likelihood of where a space vehicle will land, has improved steadily but currently still has dimensions in the order of...

The GRACE mission has provided unprecedented insights into mass redistribution processes in the Earth system. Following a strong call for continuation of the mass observations, the GRACE-Follow On (GRACE-FO) mission was launched in May 2018, leaving a coverage gap of ca. 1 year between GRACE and GRACE-FO. Geopotential solutions derived from data...

In 2022, ESA plans to launch the JUICE (JUpiter ICy moons Explorer) mission which will spend at least three years making detailed observations of Jupiter and three of its largest moons, Ganymede, Callisto and Europa. These moons are currently a hot topic within the science community as their interiors might include oceans consisting of liquid...
