ASU’s Milo Space Science Institute: Increasing the World’s Access to Space

About the Seminar

April 30, 2024 9:00am—10:30am

The prospect of space exploration has forever captivated the human imagination, but opportunities to do so are still limited to a select few countries despite decades of advancement in spaceflight technology and infrastructure. Recognizing this long-standing inequity, ASU’s Milo Space Science Institute (Milo) is collaborating with a growing set of universities, research institutes, and space agencies enabling countries to participate in the growing space economy by empowering scientists and engineers worldwide to actively join in the design, development, and execution of space missions. Join CSPO for this seminar with Jim Bell, Chief Scientist and Co-Founder of Milo, to learn about the institute’s founding principles, goals, and collaborative methods including workforce development programs, payload investigations, and potential deep space small-sat missions.



Jim Bell is a Professor in the School of Earth & Space Exploration at Arizona State University and the Chief Scientist of ASU’s Milo Space Science Institute. He is also an Adjunct Professor in the Dept. of Astronomy at Cornell…
