“ASU truly knows what it means to be a great partner with industry. Our partnership to create a satellite operations training course is the first of its kind utilizing Qwaltec’s expertise in space mission operations and ASU’s expertise in space exploration. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to provide that same mission operations expertise to ASU’s LunaH map mission and to collaborate on ideas for future missions. ASU looks for the best solution and definitely does not believe, ‘we’ve always done it this way’ is a good answer...They are an excellent example of what a university should be.”

Shawn Linam
President and CEO, Qwaltec


“ASU has been a terrific partner for Blue Origin and Orbital Reef because it is constantly challenging the status quo.  The culture of the university celebrates its students and faculty while always looking over the next hill, around the next corner.  This is a place that walks the talk of innovation -- technically and socially – which is critical in aerospace.  We know we can rely on the ASU community to help us see the world as it could be, and then to go out and help create it together.”


Erika Wagner
Sr Director, Emerging Markets, Blue Origin




“We are at the early stages of mankind’s greatest scientific and human adventure. Past editions of the Interplanetary Initiative’s Futures Convening created various fundamental understandings of this adventure. Future editions and ASU programs promise to be even more productive. ASU has rapidly shot to the top of global space efforts, resulting in leading some of the world’s most significant space science and exploration programs.”

Dr. S. Pete Worden
Chairman, Breakthrough Initiatives


“[The Thunderbird Space Initiative’s] research and partnership development efforts have provided valuable contributions to the commercial space community. The Initiative has tremendous potential and is located in the very heart of the New Space ecosystem.”
