The Space Research and Planetary Sciences Division of the University of Bern has been granted funding to lead the development of two payloads on board of the new ESA F-Class mission 'Comet Interceptor'.
The University contributes a high-resolution camera system, the Comet Camera (CoCa), and a neutral gas mass spectrometer, the Mass Analyzer for Neutrals in a Coma (MANiaC), to the mission. The launch is planned in 2029. The division is also building instruments for a number of other missions. To help meet these challenges, we are now seeking an experienced Project Manager.
