Imagined in August 2019, Asclepios is a Space@yourService initiative project, which aims at organizing a student-led space analogue mission simulating a mission on another celestial body, for educational and research purposes. It will be the very first edition worldwide of a space analogue mission totally made by students, for students. Space@yourService is an EPFL association, whose objective is making space sciences more accessible. Accordingly, this project is open to everybody, as long as you are passionate about space sciences and feel ready to commit yourself to this adventure!


The Asclepios missions revolves around their experiment payload. We are always looking for partners wishing to conduct experiments with us.


As a way to promote space science to the general public, the Asclepios project is constantly interested in talking to the press.
