CIPS brings together UC Berkeley researchers working in numerous, diverse fields within planetary science.

The types of research, which CIPS members contribute to include:

  • Space missions

    • CIPS researchers and faculty are integrally involved in several spacecraft missions: from space based telescopes locating extrasolar planets to orbiters studying the atmospheres and interiors of planets in our own solar system. CIPS researchers are also involved in developing instruments for the next generation of space missions.
