The Interplanetary Initiative at ASU

ASU’s Interplanetary Initiative is creating the future of humans in space, and thus building a bolder and better society here on Earth.

We’re pioneering a new model for integrated research and learning to investigate, design, and communicate positive human space futures. Our research teams are deeply interdisciplinary and focused on producing rapid progress on the toughest challenges for human space exploration. Our education endeavors foster agency and empower learners with leadership and collaborative skills to solve problems and create knowledge through teamwork. We connect the private sector, universities, and government to build bolder futures in space and better societies on Earth.
