85 S Grand Ave Pasadena CA 91105 USA


The Planetary Society exists to promote public awareness and citizen involvement in exploration of the solar system, the search for extraterrestrial life, and the quest for knowledge, which benefits all aspects of our lives. Advocacy and public information about discoveries -- primarily via publications, education programs, lectures and public events -- and the use of mass media are the Society's two major tools. At the same time, the Society fosters planetary exploration by implementing new ideas, techniques, innovative research and technology, and by encouraging collaborative initiatives by the private sector, government agencies and international governments' space programs to maximize the world's progress in planetary exploration.

The Planetary Society is far and away the best source of space news and advocacy out there. I am a planetary scientist, and I still rely on the Planetary Society to keep me up to speed on current events in space exploration, and more importantly, current events in space politics. The Society does a great service to the public and the planetary science community.
