“A student led analogue space mission”
Imagined in August 2019, Asclepios was born as a Space@yourService initiative project, which aims at organizing a student-led space analogue mission simulating a mission on another celestial body. It is the first initiative worldwide of a space analogue mission totally made by students, for students in collaboration with academic institutions, scientists as well as the industry. Asclepios is now an independent association recognized by EPFL. 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! After the success of our first mission, we are now ready to launch our second mission in July 2022!
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.
