Asclepios

Envisioned in August 2019, Asclepios is a project initially created by Space@yourService, which aims to organise an analogue mission simulating a space mission to another celestial body for educational and research purposes. It is the first initiative in the world to propose an analogue mission entirely made by students, for students with the help of academic institutions, scientists and industry.
After two years of work, the Asclepios I mission was successfully completed in the tunnels of the Grimsel Test Site of NAGRA in the Bernese Alps. This project has become a full association and the new teams are already working on the next iteration of the Asclepios missions.
