The department is also taking part in several space telescope missions, mainly large ESA/NASA missions, such as the radio telescope Herschel Space Observatory, the infrared James Webb Space Telescope and the exoplanet missions Cheops and Plato , but also the predominantly Swedish POGO balloon experiment.

The installation of a new telescope in AlbaNova University Center in 2007 has significantly improved the opportunities for local instrumentation and testing. The telescope is a reflector telescope with a 1-m main mirror, making it one of the largest optical telescopes in Sweden. It was funded by a grant from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation.
