My Sky

We’re looking for images you’ve taken of your sky—whether those images are of galaxies captured through a telescope or perhaps pictures of an incredible night sky, an eclipse, a star party, or a rocket launch. We can’t guarantee that we’ll publish every image and story—but we will look at each and every one and will showcase as many as possible here on our website and a few might make it to our magazine, The Planetary Report. We look forward to seeing your Sky.

It offered a choice of reserving a place on the first expedition to the moon or on the first expedition to Mars. I signed up for Mars, and mailed my reservation in to the Haydn Planetarium; I’m waiting patiently.

At age 10, as I was then, ... more »

Daddy's Little Space Traveler

by Madhavi Joshi

May 22, 2017

My father loved science and math, and he shared that love with me. He used to lecture for the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC. He lectured about the "new" space shuttle program and the Voyager I and II spacecraft. And I went to almost every lecture with him.

Later, my dad was invited to Pasadena to tour the Jet Propulsion Lab. He brought us with him. We saw live pictures of Saturn coming in from Voyager. It was a highlight in my life. That night we got to hear a lecture from Carl Sagan, who was an idol ... more »
