Powered by AIAA, ASCEND, which stands for Accelerating Space Commerce, Exploration, and New Discovery, is the world’s premier collaborative, outcomes-driven, interdisciplinary community designed to accelerate the building of our off-world future.
ASCENDxTexas is an open summit that will bring together a broad community of stakeholders from NASA, industry, and academia to help build connections into partnerships, and engage in continuous discussions related to strategy building, development, and implementation of human and robotic lunar exploration. Content and programming will be focused on impactful outcomes and identifying opportunities holistically as a mission rather than a solution.
