“A student led analogue space mission”
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!
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.

Today we are calling for your support. The Asclepios mission, a 100% student led project, will take place in July 2021 in a lunar base located in Grimsel in the Bernese Alps.
We are looking for funding to pay for transportation and accommodation for our student team who have been working hard for the past year and a half to make this simulation a reality. As you know, this year has been complicated for everyone but also for us students. We are very proud to be part of this team, which has remained motivated despite the many postponements and health restrictions. A team that keeps its smile and its passion, even through their webcam. We wish to do our best to get together for this project we have developed. Help us to make this dream possible!
