Space & Planetary Science

interiors, surfaces, magnetospheres, etc
The field of Planetary and Space Physics is fundamentally interdisciplinary, and requires a depth and breadth of expertise impossible to house in a single department. At Georgia Tech, our group spans several schools on campus to reflect this crucial diversity of expertise. You’ll find planetary scientists housed in Earth & Atmospheric Sciences, in Chemistry, in Physics, and in Electrical Engineering, with research that truly spans from planetary interiors all the way out to the ‘edge’ of a planet’s near space environment.
