American Society for Gravitational and Space Research

American Society for Gravitational and Space Research

The American Society for Gravitational and Space Research (ASGSR) was founded to foster and promote research, education and professional development in the multidisciplinary fields of gravitational research. ASGSR brings together a diverse group of scientists and engineers to encourage an exchange of ideas bridging discovery and invention through biological and physical science research and technology in space and gravitational sciences. The members represent academia, government, and industry interests bonded by a common issue - how living organisms and physical systems respond to gravity.

See what our scientists and engineers were talking about at our annual meeting (2019 was held in Denver, Colorado November 20th-23rd). See some of the talks below...
