The Society’s dream of solar sailing came true with the successful test flight of our LightSail 1 spacecraft. LightSail 2 launched aboard the SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket on June 25, 2019. Join the Extended Mission Team and support this historic project!
Our Advocacy Program provides each Society member a voice in the process. Funding is critical. The more we have, the more effective we can be, translating into more missions, more science, and more exploration.
Shoemaker Near-Earth Object Grant Program
The Planetary Society's Shoemaker Grant program supports amateur observers, observers in developing countries, and professional astronomers following up potentially hazardous asteroids.
Each week, Planetary Radio visits with a scientist, engineer, project manager, astronaut, advocate or writer who provides a unique and exciting perspective on the exploration of our solar system and beyond. We hit the road now and then to produce a Planetary Radio Live show in front of an audience.
