Research in Astrophysics and Planetary Science at the Niels Bohr Institute Research in Astrophysics and Planetary Science at the Niels Bohr Institute Research in Astrophysics and Planetary Science at the Niels Bohr Institute Research in Astrophysics and Planetary Science at the Niels Bohr Institute Research in Astrophysics and Planetary Science at the Niels Bohr Institute


A broad spectrum of astronomy and astrophysics is researched at the Niels Bohr Institute – everything from the visible Universe such as planets, stars and galaxies – to the invisible universe and the presence of dark energy and dark matter. 

The NBI astrophysicists participate in many international projects and have access to modern telescopes and satellites via, e.g. Denmark’s membership of the European Southern Observatory (ESO) and the European Space Agency (ESA), and to state-of-the-art supercomputers. 

There is a strong tradition for collaborating with skilled engineers and technician’s towards developing and building advanced new instruments for the exploration of space.
