Through our studies, we are gaining an insight into the complex processes that are going on inside, on the surface and in the atmosphere of our planet. Another cornerstone of our education is learning about the exploration of raw materials here on earth.

My name is Pascal Koch ...

... and I want to bring the raw materials from asteroids to the earth.


I studied Physics of the Earth System: Meteorology, Oceanography and Geophysics (B.Sc.) at the Institute of Geosciences at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Science of the Christian-Albrechts University of Kiel.


While I’m pursuing my Master of Science in Geophysics – also at the University of Kiel – I’m studying asteroids. My particular interest lies in the discovery of raw materials, which can be found on such objects, through the use of remote sensing technologies and satellite-based geophysical exploration.

My name is Judith Freienstein ...

… and I want to uncover what lies inside asteroids.


I completed my B. Sc. Environmental Sciences at the Institute of Physics at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences of the University of Greifswald.


Now I am studying Geophysics (M. Sc.) at the Christian-Albrechts-University of Kiel. My interests lie in satellite and aerogeophysics with the application of remote sensing technologies. Mostly, I work with magnetic and gravimetric devices for the exploration of the earth, especially for scientific use. I am eager to extend these methods to more distant extraterrestrial objects.

My name is Philipp Tabelow ...

… and I want to be a part of the transition to a cleaner and more sustainable future of mining.


Between 2016 and 2020, I studied geosciences at the Institute of Geosciences at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Science of the Christian-Albrechts-University of Kiel.  


Currently, I am pursuing my Master's degree in Geophysics at the same institute. My interests lie in the exploration and extraction of mineral resources on Earth and in space. This project enables the application of the geophysical methods to explore resources in extraterrestrial bodies.
