Neptune and Uranus are in many ways distant exploration targets, but NASA's planetary science division is starting to examine options for missions to the ice giants
NASA's Outer Planet Analysis Group is currently meeting to hear the agency's current plans and to provide the feedback of the scientific community on those plans.

What does LightSail have in common with the moon? They're both big, beautiful, sun-reflecting satellites of Earth, and both carry a particularly cool instrument.
A cluster of small mirrors will be added to LightSail's aft hull to allow engineers to precisely track its position as it sails around the planet next year.

You can now play around with a 3D digital model of Rosetta's comet, and it's all thanks to open data sharing.
A terrific new visualization tool for comet 67/P Churyumov-Gerasimenko demonstrates the value of sharing mission image data with the public. The browser-based tool lets you spin a simulated 3D view of the comet. It began with a 3D model of the comet created not by ESA, but by a space enthusiast, Mattias Malmer.

Emily Lakdawalla brings us to Jupiter's tiny, innermost moons. Awash in the gas giant's extreme radiation, these ringmoons are tricky to image.
People often ask me to produce one of my scale-comparison montages featuring the small moons of the outer solar system. I'd love to do that, but Galileo's best images of Jupiter's ringmoons lack detail compared to Cassini's images from Saturn.

n.n My mistake, gentlemen. Thanx for the corrections. It'd have been odd otherwise.

Another engine test, another step closer to NASA's Space Launch System
NASA completed the sixth and next-to-last test firing of its RS-25 engine Thursday in Mississippi. Four RS-25 engines power the Space Launch System core stage.

The children are our future! Let's make sure they have the best space books in their libraries.
Space fans, here is a valuable community service that you can perform in your neighborhood: Vet your school library's space book collections. My kids' elementary school librarian asked me to take a look at the nonfiction space book collection and cull any outdated or just wrong books. I culled quite a few, and am now recommending some replacements.

Introduction
The Planetary Society is a nonprofit dedicated to promoting space exploration around the world.

With over 40,000 dues-paying members, we advocate in the halls of Congress; we create our own space missions, like our solar sail LightSail-1; and we work to educate the public and increase awareness about current planetary missions.
