Funding secured for NICE experiment

The Swiss government will contribute nearly three million euros to support the NICE (Nulling Interferometer Cryogenic Experiment) project as part of PRODEX (PROgramme de Développement d’EXpériences scientifiques), a European Space Agency (ESA) programme. This funding will enable ETH researchers that are part of the LIFE team to develop important technological foundations that are indispensable to realising our ambitious space mission. More details in this press release by ETH.
