Welcome to our website !
[email protected] ([email protected]) is an EPFL association, whose main goal is to popularize space sciences (astronomy, astrophysics and space engineering) among the general public and EPFL students.
In order to achieve it, we organize different events open to everybody and accessible even if you don’t have any physics’ background !
One of our main event is surely Astronomy on Tap : aotlausanne.ch
Here is the link of AoT International if you don‘t know what an AoT consist of or if you want to have a look where all the others are taking part in the world: astronomyontap.org.
We have also just launched Asclepios, an analog space mission on another celestial star, such as Mars or the Moon, for 7 days. If you want more information on this ambitious project, supported by the European Space Agency (ESA), go to the dedicated website: asclepios.ch.
Our current events
Mission Asclepios is a growing scientific project aiming at simulating a short-term mission on another celestial body (like the Moon or Mars) which will take place within next year (2020) in a remote location, Switzerland or abroad and organized by our association
The team is divided into two groups: Mission Control and the crew in the Moon Village. The base was severely damaged: you only have 45 min before the oxygen runs out. What caused the damage? Rescue your crew before the unnamable happens… Failure is not an option!
