Abstract. Space Physics was born with the launch of the first artifi­
cial satellite, Sputnik, in 1957. The ability to conduct in situ physical
measurements in distant, previously inaccessible regions, has made Space
Physics a distinct discipline. Space flight has led to important discoveries
that clarified and revolutionized our knowledge about near­Earth space.
Furthermore, scientific payloads of ever­increasing complexity have been
developed for space missions, pushing technology to new frontiers. Here
we are presenting a synoptic review of past and current space physics
activities in Greece. Future prospects in our field are outlined, with ref­
erence to international trends and national possibilities. This review is
not exhaustive, and it focuses on the activity of the space physics groups
at the National Observatory of Athens and at the University of Thrace,
which are the main space physics groups in Greece. Needless to say,
