Heraeus Products in Space

Fused silica in Aerospace and Astronomy

Since the groundbreaking moon landing in 1969 materials from Heraeus have been used to explore the universe. Heraeus technology is giving astronomers new ways to study our universe by mapping the Milky way, determining the position of a billion stars as well as exploring the dark universe and finding black holes. Moreover, Heraeus materials are helping to measure gravitational waves reaching our planet from deep space and even prove how the earth really ‘ticks’.

Projects like MOON, GAIA, EUCLID and more provide insights which role Heraeus plays in the future of space exploration. Read more about some projects below.
