Dan Geraci

December 10, 2013

I'm a child of the space program—born in 1957, a few months ahead of the Sputnik launch. The Apollo program and my dream of becoming an astronaut defined my childhood.

In 1990, I stumbled across an ad for The Planetary Society and decided to join. The Planetary Report magazine gave me an insider’s view of space from an incredible group of experts I had admired over the years, including Carl Sagan.

Today there is much more that I value about my Planetary Society Membership. It gives me a vital connection to something I have loved for so long.

Instead of pursuing my passion as an individual, Membership connects me to a global community of like-minded people.

I appreciate how the Society informs and educates in a straightforward way, with the right mix of technical depth for the true scientist, yet in a way the amateur enthusiast can fathom.

I admire the people committed to our cause: a Board of highly credentialed space experts, a dedicated staff and thousands of members worldwide who share the same passion.

I take pride in our impact, through projects that advance space science and through advocacy that affects the future of space exploration.

Twenty-three years ago, I became a Member of The Planetary Society out of love for all things space and a desire to have an inside track in the community. Today I remain a Member, and serve proudly as your Board Chairman, for those same reasons.
