School of Earth and Space Exploration's OSIRIS-REx Launch Party


Come watch from the Marston Exploration Theater as Dr. Philip Christensen and his team launch the School of Earth and Space Exploration-built OTES on NASA's OSIRIS-REx spacecraft. With a live NASA feed from the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, launch experts on hand, and light refreshments, it's sure to be a blast!


The Marston Exploration Theater is located on the first floor of ASU's Interdisciplinary Science and Technology Building IV (ISTB 4), the home of the School of Earth and Space Exploration. ISTB 4 (map) is located near the intersection of Rural and Terrace Road in Tempe on the east side of campus. This seven-story structure is ASU’s largest research facility, and is accessible on foot via Orange Street and McCallister Ave. If arriving by Light Rail, exit at the University and Rural Road stop.

Parking is available for $3/hour inside the Rural Road parking structure just east of ISTB 4. From the parking structure, walk west and enter ISTB 4 through the glass doors on the north side of the building. Please note that a parking fee is charged upon exit. There is additional pay parking directly south of ISTB 4 available for $2/hour. There is an automated payment registration kiosk on the parking lot's west side (the corner near the building).
