Center for Meteorite Studies

The Center for Meteorite Studies is home to the largest university-based meteorite collection in the world

We house over 30,000 individual specimens representing more than 2,000 distinct meteorite falls and finds, and our collection is actively used for geological, planetary, and space science research at ASU and throughout the world.

Explore the universe using science and engineering

The School of Earth and Space Exploration, or SESE (pronounced "see-see"), takes a new approach to education and research and the exploration of our universe.

Science and engineering — essential for developing new instruments to explore Earth and space — are the foundation of our programs, which also emphasize the role of technology in advancing scientific knowledge. 


Admission Overview

SESE does not currently have special admission requirements. If you are accepted into ASU, you may declare one of the SESE majors. Although there are no specific admission requirements for SESE, students seeking SESE majors must have strong science and math backgrounds.


Our research happens in labs and cleanrooms — and even on the surface of Mars.

The interdisciplinary work of ASU’s School of Earth and Space Exploration brings together the brightest minds in astronomy and astrophysics, cosmology, geosciences, planetary sciences, exploration systems engineering and science education.
