ACHIEVED – Assembly for Concepts in Human Interplanetary Exploration with Various Extraterrestrial Designations

As space agencies and private space companies seek new mission design concepts that challenge and advance our technological and/or scientific knowledge, our research team strives to support the space community with original and innovative mission designs.

How do we do this ?

Stemming out of ACHIEVED, we have created two year-long mission design team : 

  • HOPE – High-technology Operations for Planetary Exploration 

Examining a deep space CubeSat-based mission that provides flexibility, affordability, and lower risk than traditional single-spacecraft missions. The outcome is a technology demonstration mission to study Uranus and its moons with a main orbiter carrying several CubeSat as its payload.

  • RAISE – Research Assembly for Innovative projects in Space Exploration 

Investigating an innovative approach to a Mercury sample return mission. The science collected from this mission will bring us closer to understanding how Mercury formed and potentially how our own Moon formed.

Interested? Meet us!

We are an international and interdisciplinary team of 20 students and young professionals who are preparing the young generation to design space exploration missions while supporting diversity and multidisciplinarity.

Exploration can’t be ACHIEVED without curiosity

Space exploration has increased human knowledge and presence within the Solar System, and it has brought tangible science and technology benefits to our lives. The success of space exploration has its maximum exponent in the International Space Station (ISS) where sophisticated capabilities and fruitful partnerships have been developed. The ISS is still producing meaningful benefits for humanity by providing a platform for conducting physical and life sciences experiments as well as research related to the constraints of long-time human space flight. The future of space exploration will be to send robotic and human missions beyond Low-Earth orbit (LEO), to the Moon, to asteroids, to Mars and beyond. Most of the people who will make it a reality are now teenagers, students or young professionals. To implement concepts and ideas from the next generation, the Space Exploration Project Group (SEPG) is launching 4 new committees to form revised editions on existing Space Exploration Roadmaps based on the voices of young professionals. It represents an international effort to prepare collaborative human and robotic space exploration and to define feasible and sustainable exploration pathways to the Moon, near-Earth asteroids, Mars and deep space over the next 25 years. To kickstart this program, we are addressing 4 themes of this roadmap:

  • Revising the Global Exploration Roadmap strategy, incorporation of space exploration benefits to Earth.
  • Humans on Mars, stepping stone to further exploration
  • Europe’s 2030 and beyond strategy
  • Space for Science

The space exploration ROADMAP intends to create a compact version of a space exploration roadmap emphasizing important and critical issues that have been discussed during the work in the sub-committees. Results of the committees will be presented towards policy makers at various conferences and/or journals.


The ‘Domi Inter Astra’ – Home Among the Stars – is an international initiative by space enthusiasts, students and professionals from a plethora of expertise areas collaborating to develop a multidisciplinary perspective and thereby identify the history and current progress towards habitation on the Moon, synthesize a roadmap towards the commissioning of the habitat, identify the challenges and bottlenecks and thereby propose and investigate potential solutions to catalyze lunar habitation.

The objective is to formulate the outcomes of this investigative endeavor into a volume of analysis, insights and solutions from a multidimensional STEAM perspective – to be comprehensible for an audience of all backgrounds – hence increasing knowledge accessibility to the lunar habitation activities in-progress or even begin new initiatives with this fortification. It is founded on the winning case submission for the Moon Base Design Competition organized by the Moon Society. As the investigative tracks of this endeavor are parallel, asynchronous and asymmetric, the produced work is intended to be trifurcated into a book, assorted research publications and investigative case studies and reports dependent on the standard norms and protocols of each domain for better operational effectiveness.

Domi Inter Astra is also a part of the Space Exploration Project Group (SEPG) of the Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) and is powered by youth volunteers, i.e. space enthusiasts aged 18-35 in the SGAC’s ecosystem in line with its vision – to employ the creativity and vigor of youth in advancing humanity through the peaceful uses of outer space.

SEPG has a long history of conference paper publication with groups of members that are part of SEPG. Conferences where SEPG has presented include IAC, EPSC, GLEX, IAAA and more. We invite you to send in your ideas to participate in determining the future of space exploration. From SEPG we can offer support in these ways:

  • Reviewing papers
  • Finding co-authors
  • Supporting finding advisors

For larger scale projects we offer support to transform the project into an SEPG flagship project like ACHIEVED or ROADMAP. 

Disclaimer: SEPG cannot grant financial support towards projects or reimburse travel costs towards conferences.
