Powering the human drive to explore space

Space inspires and holds the promise of bounty for humanity.

At Arizona State University, we believe a deeply transdisciplinary approach is needed to create the social and systems-level solutions that will pave our way as an interplanetary species. We bring together top researchers and scholars from across the university to work with our students and commercial partners, across sectors and disciplines to help us better understand and expand our reach into the universe.

The impact across the university is broad and deep
