ASP was founded with the goal of developing a qualified body of commercial astronauts. Since its founding, ASP’s offerings have iterated in multiple ways, and continue to do so to more closely match the needs of the human spaceflight industry. Our membership has designed experiments and technologies that benefit from payload specialist operators. Based on these efforts, members have had the potential to test technology in analog environments and in parabolic flight profiles.
As ASP moves forward, we continue to develop partnerships with launch providers, universities, and commercial training organizations. Within these partnerships, ASP’s members continue to advance core technology capabilities, and are building this set of initiatives into a larger framework of professional development.
ASP recognizes the need for a highly qualified professional body to make major milestones in human spaceflight possible. We are looking for dedicated, qualified students and professionals to join our community to help advance the human spaceflight industry.
Offering opportunities in project management, professional development, and social connection, ASP is an ideal platform to aid the University student on the academic journey.
The spaceflight professional joins ASP with the goal of advancing their career and furthering a vision for a future in spaceflight.
