Origins Project

The Origins Project is a transdisciplinary initiative that nurtures research, energizes teaching, and builds partnerships, offering new possibilities for exploring the most fundamental of questions who we are and where we came from.

In 2018, the Origins Project transitioned into ASU's Interplanetary Initiative supported by the School of Earth and Space Exploration and headed by Lindy Elkins-Tanton, the school's director. The initiative focuses on building collaborative research and education teams that explore the challenges around a future with humans in space.
