About PERC

Mission of PERC

1) Research in space and planetary sciences

Understanding origin and evolution of the universe, planets, and human beings is the most important goal of space science. In particular, planetary science has a vital role to illustrate universal existence of the Earth, life, and human beings, and provide an answer to the fundamental questions of "where did we come from, and where will we head for?" New data sets obtained from planetary explorations, enable us to study the origin and evolution of the solar system, examine the past and future of the Earth, and pioneer a new world for human beings.

2) Research and development of key technology

Toward future planetary explorations, we develop state-of-art space technologies required to assure mission success and safety for space activity under the harsh environment, such as zero gravity, extremely high vacuum, and wide temperature range.
