Planetary Research at FMI

Spaceresearch began in Finland in an explicite form making experiments in 1985 with the Promics and Phobos projects. As a result of these first steps and the contacts created to Russia, France and Germany an active phase of experimental research was initiated.  Dr. Jochen Kissel  played a significant role in this development which led to involvment in CIDA, CONTOUR and  COSIMA/Rosetta.
