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.
