The International Space Station Archaeological Project (ISSAP) is the first large-scale space archaeology project. It is a joint venture led by Dr. Justin Walsh (Chapman University – Orange, CA, USA) and Dr. Alice Gorman (Flinders University-Adelaide, SA, AUS) together with an international team of scholars. We are studying the crew of the International Space Station as a “microsociety in a miniworld.” Our project will have positive effects on the development of long-duration space missions, and it will extend the discipline of archaeology into a new context.

Between January and March 2022, we performed the first archaeology off of the Earth. Check out our blog for more information. This work was featured in numerous news articles, which you can find at the bottom of our “In the News” page.
