KASI and CRESS  As the national research institute for astronomy since 1974, KASI has carried out research activities, especially by developing, establishing, and operating medium- and large-sized observational facilities and instruments and has laid the foundation for the advance of science. Solidifying scientific capabilities in research and on telescopes, KASI undertakes its efforts toward a higher level of the global network of research cooperation. The three research divisions (Optical Astronomy, Radio Astronomy and Space Science) and the three research centers (Center for Large Telescope, Center for Theoretical Astronomy, Center for SMEs Partnership) have been newly set up, securing spontaneous ideas and each research project and enhancing the cooperation and the flexibility of the researchers.  KASI space weather group deals with scientific investigations of the Sun-Earth connection, thus studying the solar activity and the physics of Earth’s magnetosphere, ionosphere, and upper atmosphere by applying experimental and theoretical methods and numerical simulations. Recently, this group started new space projects. One is the small satellite mission named SNIPE (Small scale magNetospheric and Ionospheric Plasma Experiment), and the other is the development of Solar Coronagraph on the ISS (International Space Station).  KASI planetary science group is one of leading research institutes in South Korea for Korean lunar exploration mission. For supporting this challenging space mission, KASI is developing engineering models of ting-edge space payloads including a near-infrared spectrometer, gamma-ray, and neutron spectrometer. With these payloads, KASI is investigating the presence of water ice on the Moon and physical properties on the surface of the airless body including lunar chronology, space weathering and lunar cratering.  The Space Astronomy Group research mainly on the Cosmic Infrared backgrounds from the early universe, and Galactic interstellar medium, based on the various observational data obtained in the space. The group has successfully launched several instruments on satellite and rocket: FIMS (Far-ultraviolet Imaging Spectrograph), MIRIS (Multi-purpose IR Imaging System), CIBER (Cosmic Infrared Background Experiment), and NISS (Near-infrared Imaging Spectrometer for Star formation history). The group takes part in international space telescope projects such as MESSIER, SPHEREx, and WFIRST, to enhance group’s capability for the long-term goal of building Korean 1m-class space telescope.   More detailed information on KASI can be found:  - Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute: https://www.kasi.re.kr/eng/index - Space Science Division at KASI: https://www.kasi.re.kr/eng/pageView/67 The Centre for Research in Earth and Space Science (CRESS) is an interdisciplinary research unit in Lassonde School of Engineering at York University. The current areas of research cover a broad range of topics in earth and space science, from geodynamics to the study of the earth's troposphere, the stratosphere, mesosphere and thermosphere, and the earth's plasma environment. It also includes research on planetary atmospheres, on stars (including the sun), and on the interplanetary medium. CRESS is involved in numerous Canadian, NASA, and international spaceflight projects including the NASA OSIRIS-REx mission for planetary exploration and Phoenix mission to Mars. CRESS involves faculty from the Departments of Chemistry, Computer Science, Earth, and Space Science and Engineering and Physics & Astronomy. Some current highlights include: CSA Group Achievement Award for leadership in the Wind Imaging Interferometer project; M. Richer, graduate student of Professor McCall, nominated for the doctoral thesis prize and awarded the Plaskett Medal of the Canadian Astronomical Society for 1995; NASA Group Achievement Award for contributions to the Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite mission; OMEE Award for Excellence in Research and Technology Development to professors Hastie, Shepson and McConnell; Professor Marshall McCall discovers two new galaxies located nearby to our own galaxy, the Milky way. An award from the Canadian Foundation for Innovation to Professor McConnell has provided high-performance computers for atmospheric modeling of air quality, and a laboratory on the roof of the Petrie Science and Engineering Building. A CFI award to Professor Quine has provided space test facilities; a vibration test facility, and a thermal vacuum facility.  In 2015, CRESS (Professor Michael Daly, York Research Chair in Planetary Science) received more than $1.3 million in funding to build a Canadian Planetary Simulator (CAPS) facility. The Canadian Planetary Simulator will allow the simulation and investigation of extreme terrestrial and other planetary environments as well as the development and testing of instruments suited to these environments. The simulator is the only one of its kind known - a combination of capable integrated instruments with a capable environmental simulator. It will allow Canadian universities to lead high profile research in planetary and instrument science and provide Canadian companies with competitive advantages in the development of instrumentation. Daly will lead a team of scientists from York University, as well as collaborators from eight companies and ten other universities on the project. Also, the members at the CRESS (Professors Tom McElroy and Regina Lee) receive more than $1.68 million in funding to establish a state-of-the-art research facility for designing, building, characterizing and operating instruments and payloads for sub-orbital missions. The facility will support end-to-end mission development for cost-effective, orbital and sub-orbital platforms: nanosatellites, suborbital rockets, high-altitude balloons, and airplanes. The facility will comprise: (1) a micro-fabrication laboratory optimized for the production of Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) payloads; (2) a payload calibration and flight test-bed for systems integration and space-qualification; and (3) a mission operations center for real-time data analysis, satellite tracking, and communications.
