The 241st meeting of the American Astronomical Society (AAS) is a gathering of the astrophysics community January 8-12, 2023 in Seattle, WA. The mission of the AAS is to enhance and share humanity's scientific understanding of the universe as a diverse and inclusive astronomical community. The AAS event seeks to increase public support for scientific research, improve science education at all levels, attract young people to careers in science and technology, and make evident the connections between science, technology, and prosperity.
Ball Aerospace is a proud sponsor of the 241st meeting of the American Astronomical Society and we will have a booth featuring our role on the Roman Space Telescope and Webb Space Telescope. Learn about our programs and capabilities below.

Learn about how our extensive heritage across science and exploration mission classes informs our development of technology that will enable the science of tomorrow.
Working closely with the science community, Ball Aerospace contributed to all four of NASA’s Great Observatories – Hubble, Compton, Chandra and Spitzer.
Ball Configurable Platform
The BCP is equipped for a range of missions, including space-based environmental monitoring, deep space exploration and more.
James Webb Space Telescope
Learn about our role on NASA’s latest premier observatory which is studying emissions from objects formed when the universe was just beginning.
Roman Space Telescope
The Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope will enable advances in astrophysics by providing survey capabilities in infrared wavelengths.
The Imaging X-Ray Polarimetry Explorer mission measures the polarization of cosmic X-rays to improve our understanding of exotic objects in the universe.
Science at Any Scale
From delivering entire missions to contributing critical subsystems, engineering support, and operations, we value our role as a mission partner.
Ball Aerospace is at the forefront of miniaturizing instruments for ai and space-based applications.
NASA’s SPHEREx mission is performing the first near-infrared all-sky spectral survey to answer critical questions about the universe.
