IDR/UPM IN THE SPACE

The IDR/UPM develops an intense research and development activity in aerospace technology. The origins of this activity date back to the 1970s, when Professor Ignacio Da Riva (1930-1991) began his research on the behavior of liquid bridges in low gravity conditions.

The table shows the space projects in which the IDR/UPM is participating and those that have already concluded.
