Our Global Volunteers: December 2014 Update

The Planetary Society’s Global Volunteer Network has been busy these past few months! We have volunteers around the world coming together to share the passion, beauty and joy of space exploration with their communities, and we’re incredibly proud of what they have done so far.

As our volunteer network grows we will continue to share stories of the fantastic work they are doing. For now, here are some snapshots of The Planetary Society’s volunteers in action. If you want to get in on the fun, check out planetary.org/volunteer!
