The advisors

Dr. Jian Guo
Board member and Theme Leader of TU Delft Space Institute. A space system engineer with a special focus on small satellites. Since 2001, Jian has worked with various micro- and nano-satellite missions including the first Chinese nanosatellite THNS-1 and the Dutch Delfi nanosatellites. He is also an active member of worldwide small satellite communities, such as the IAC SmallSat Committee and the ESA/CNES 4S Committee. 

Emil Vinterhav
CTO at ÅAC Microtec. MSc in Engineering Physics at LTH. Emil has been working at leading space companies in many aspects of space technology and engineering since 1999. Emil has promoted space activities on a variety of arenas, teaching at KTH, lobbying thought industry interest organizations and through art projects such as the House on the Moon.


Jan-Erik Wahlund
Ph.D. Space Physics. Professor at IRF. Principal Investigator for the Swedish METAL spacecraft mission to a metallic rich (M-type) asteroid. Project manager and investigator of many payloads on spacecrafts including Cassini, Rosetta and BepiColombo.

Anna Rathsman
CTO at SSC, M.Sc Electrical Engineering, KTH. Anna has a vast background within the space industry; her career includes positions such as Senior Vice President Corporate Communications & Business Development, Head of SSC’s Space Engineering Department, Project Manager for several space projects as well as system engineering tasks.

Dr (h.c.) Sven Grahn
​Space Nestor, M.Sc Engineering Physics, KTH. Worked with seven Swedish satellite projects while at Swedish Space Corporation 1975-2006. Retired as VP Engineering. Now project manager for KTH’s MIST student Cubesat project.

Christer Fuglesang
Professor in Spaceflight at KTH, and part time advisor to Saab. M.Sc. Engineering Physics at KTH. Ph.d in particle physics. Astronaut and did two space flights with the space shuttle Discovery to ISS where he did 5 space walks. Former head of ESA science division regarding ISS and zero gravity at ESTEC.

Peter Rathsman
CTO of OHB Sweden. Peter joined SSC in 1983 later OHB. He has a background in satellite systems engineering and project management and has been involved in almost all national satellite projects since the late 1980’s. He was also project manager for ESA’s first lunar mission, SMART-1 which used electric propulsion to travel from GTO to lunar orbit.
