Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

A range of space systems engineering technologies are currently under development at the University of Glasgow. Much of this work centres on advanced propulsion (solar sailing and tethers) which is complemented by studies on space robotics and spacecraft autonomy. This paper summarises these activities to provide a brief overview of current research interests. Although some work represents fundamental research in space systems engineering, much is mission-oriented and focused on future exploitation.
