Human spaceflight and microgravity


CSRC company and scientists from Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering of the CTU finalize project ELT. The ELT project is purely Czech contribution to important international experiment ACES. Its major goal is to verify performance of new generation of extremely precise atomic clock in microgravity.

CSO is active in the UN

UN Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space adopted the conclusions of an international workshop on human space flight and Solar System exploration. CSO presented the status of relevant research in the Czech Republic and participated in the formulation of recommendations of the working group on research in microgravity conditions.

Biological research seminar

Czech Space Office organizes a workshop for Czech scientific community on biological and astrobiologického research. The aim is to apprise the participants with possibilities of realization of the experiments and forthcoming ESA challenges in usage of the International Space Station and terrestrial scientific equipment. Registration is open till 11th June 2013.

Radiation research on ISS

Today at 14:16 CET Sojuz TMA-03M lifted off from the Russian cosmodrom Bajkonur to the international Space Station with the flight engineer, Andre Kuipers onboard. His and the whole crew’s main task will be to perform a set of scientific experiments including the DOSIS-3D with a Czech participation.

Project ELT

The implementation of ambitious space project „European Laser Timing“ (ELT), with the involvement of Czech scientists, entered the final phase. The main goal of the project is to synchronize a pair of extremely precise atomic clock through laser pulses, one on Earth and another in space.

Research in Antarctica

A Czech physician Aleš Rybka has been working in the Antarctic research station Concordia since last December. He was selected by the European Space Agency from multiple candidates and his task is to conduct experiments and thus medically pave the way for long-term manned spaceflights.


The objective of the DOsimetry of BIological Experiments in Space (DOBIES) project was to develop a standard dosimetric method as a combination of different techniques to estimate absorbed dose, dose equivalent and linear energy transfer (LET) spectrum in biological samples irradiated in space.

Czech spaceship

Young Czech architect Tomáš Rousek has created for the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration NASA a new spacecraft design with artificial gravity for a mission to an asteroid. Draft of the rotating spacecraft was awarded as the most outstanding innovation conference in August at the "Explore NOW", which was organized by NASA.
