Arizona State University in Space
Arizona State University has a long track record of involvement in space exploration missions. Beginning in the 1970′s and continuing on through the present, professors and researchers from ASU’s School of Earth and Space Exploration are currently involved with six NASA missions and one European Space Agency (ESA) mission.
A few highlights of ASU’s involvement are the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera, Mercury MESSENGER mission, and Mars exploration. ASU will also be involved in several future missions, including the Mars Science Laboratory, set to launch later this year and the upcoming OSIRIS-REx mission.
