What is a member ?

A member of the Asclepios project is a gear in an analogue mission machine. Asclepios contributes to the overall space industry by creating a testbed for space technology, training students and arousing the public interest. A member is therefore someone willing to share the thrill of such an adventure in one of its many aspects ranging from proper science to communication or logistics.

Why join the project ?

  • Skill development for every member while accomplishing their tasks or through specialized workshops.
  • Several fields to choose from with the various project teams and tasks.
  • International collaboration drawing members and space professionals from all around the globe.
  • A joint effort with team members working together and receiving assistance when required.

What do we expect from you ?

  • Commitment: It is thanks to our members that we accomplish anything at all, and if you want to join you have to be ready to work regularly during the preparation of the mission and its duration. This means being responsive and dedicating the appropriate time to the tasks you’ve chosen.
  • Collaboration: As stated, the project is a joint effort and it means that members work together. While some tasks offer great independance, members still need to communicate their progress with the other members.

How to become a member ?

Members of the project must also be members of the “Space@YourService” association which aims at promoting space sciences and is responsible for the Asclepios project. Its yearly membership fee is of 20 swiss francs. If you apply, we will provide you with more details on how to join Space@yourService.

To apply for the project, fill out the contact form and indicate which team and tasks interest you. Each task is detailed down below. You will find the contact form down below.

The Science team is divided into three subteams, listed down below. They are each composed of a Subteam manager, a Contact officer, a Logistics officer and an Astronauts officer. If you want to apply to one of these tasks, you need to specify which subteam interest you.

SYSTEMS : The team works on all the possible technologies which will “power” the base and the mission. Their mission : make the mission as close as a real space mission by adding/developing space-applied technologies. The team will contact companies for support or develop (through master/bachelor projects) systems like spacesuits, rovers, air purifiers, adapting lights, SAS chamber, solar arrays, … ). 

OPERATIONS : This team ONLY works on the mission’s experiments (it’s like a rocket’s payload). Their mission : find or create experiments that will fit with the mission’s context, purpose and focus (example for a moon analogue : radiation experiment, ice forage, dust removing machine, …). 

LIFE ABOARD : They’re entirely dedicated to manage the human factor in the mission. It’s a “humanized” version of SYSTEMS. Their mission : adapt the mission so that astronauts live in safe conditions. Create/find technologies allowing that (space toilets, managing food resources, sanity, …).
