Frank Postberg has accepted a Professor position at Freie Universität Berlin and his research group has moved to this new institution.


The research group works on the exploration of planetary objects, mainly in the outer solar system, with dust detectors on space craft. Our main method is analyzing the composition of cosmic dust particles to learn on the composition of their source bodies.
More on planetary science with cosmic dust.
