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. It is the first initiative worldwide of a space analogue mission totally made by students, for students in collaboration with academic institutions, scientist as well as the industry. Space@yourService is an association recognized by EPFL, 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.
Join the team
It is the members of the project that makes it a reality. Asclepios is always open to applications.
At the beginning of October and in respect of the barrier gestures, Asclepios celebrated the arrival of its new members during an integration weekend.
All members were able to meet in person or by teleconference and get to know each other through fun activities such as “2 truths 1 lie” or a morning jog.
This weekend was an opportunity to present the structure of the different teams and the functioning of the association but also to meet our mentors such as Julia Schmale from EERL, Emmanuelle David from eSpace, the explorer Alban Michon or Claude Nicollier, Swiss astronaut.
On the last day, everyone was able to try out the different roles of the future Mission Control Center through different scenarios featuring our astronauts who were facetious.
