Welcome!

asgsb_image2Welcome to the home page of the American Society for Gravitational and Space Research (ASGSR). ASGSR was formerly known as the American Society for Gravitational and Space Biology (ASGSB). As of June 2012, the ASGSB began its transformation to ASGSR as a result of historical membership vote to expand the charter to include basic and applied physical sciences. The heritage of the society was founded in 1984 to foster 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 basic and applied 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.
