“A student led analogue space mission”
Mission Asclepios I - Genesis crew take-off in :
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, scientists 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! In July 2021, the first mission will occur, followed by numerous others.
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.
Join the team Asclepios!
It will soon be the beginning of a new era for the Asclepios Team. As the end of the year arrives, some of our members will soon sail to new horizons. That’s why we need you as member to write the next chapters of the Asclepios project!
As you know, Asclepios is a Space@yourService initiative and an EPFL MAKE project, which aims at organizing a student-led space analogue mission simulating a space mission on Earth, for educational and research pruposes. Asclepios is made by students and for students and the first mission will take place in the next few months. But after that, its little sister Asclepios II will come and it will need motivated and passionate people too.
And it might be you ! Finding places for the simulation, training the astronauts, carrying out scientific experiments…This is a non-exhaustive list of what it takes to simulate sending a crew to the moon! Are you tempted by the adventure?
We are currently recruiting students all across the world to design and build the second edition which will take place in Switzerland in 2022. Many fields ranging from science to communication are open for application.
