MIT Media Lab Space Exploration initiative

In academic year 2016-2017, the Media Lab Space Exploration initiative was launched. The initiative has since grown from grassroots student interest to a team of over 50 students, faculty, and staff actively prototyping our open-access, space-hacking future. The initiative supports 20+ research projects (from satellite constellation algorithms to astrobiology) via R&D funding, launch and deployment contracts, monthly project-review roundtables, conference funding, and mentorship from an expanding network of space exploration advisors.
