CERN, where the Medipix technologies were born, has a lot in common with space missions. They both deal with extreme environments, posing stringent technological requirements that often overlap. Timepix is being exploited for radiation monitoring in NASA's orion rocket and at the International Space Station. Read more about the projects below.

Projects in Space Dosimetry:
The Timepix chip arrived at the ISS in 2012, to be used for monitoring the radiation environment.
In 2014, two Timepix chips were incorporated into a battery-operated system.
