Ten years ago, on 14 September 2000, the Space Campus in Kiruna was formally inaugurated by King Carl XVI Gustaf. The decade since the inauguration has proved to be one of considerable success in the research fields of space- and atmospheric physics and space technology for the organisations on the Space Campus: the Swedish Institute of Space Physics (IRF), the Department of Space Science (IRV) at Luleå University of Technology, and the EISCAT Scientific Association.
