How Infiniscope makes space exploration awesome

Created by Arizona State University’s School of Earth and Space Exploration and funded by NASA’s Science Mission Directorate, the Infiniscope project makes the vastness of space and space exploration inviting, accessible, and interactive for educators and learners of all ages. Infiniscope believes that space exploration and learning experiences should inspire curiosity, excitement, engagement, and confidence – and we couldn’t agree more!
