Defying Gravity: Students shooting for the Moon

Actions and Detail Panel

Event description
EPFL Pavilions and CDH Culture present Defying Gravity, an exhibition showcasing the work done under the project Asclepios.

About this event

The Asclepios project was conceived by the EPFL student association Space@yourService, whose objective is to make space sciences more accessible to the public.

In the present imagining, Asclepios is the name of a project initiated in August 2019 whose aim is to organize a mission simulating a space expedition. It is one of the first initiatives in the world to propose an analog mission to space, an initiative developed entirely by students, for students. With the help of academic institutions, scientists, as well as industry support, the Space@yourService EPFL student organization conceived and set in motion a set of training sessions on top of a frozen lake deep in the Swiss mountains, the full mission to take place in July 2021.

The exhibition is open from the May 4th to May 23rd
