Events

The Planetary Society creates and participates in events to bring the excitement of space exploration to public audiences. From our world-wide Planetfests to lectures in small-town libraries to hanging a solar-sail blade in Rockefeller Center in New York, we are constantly finding new ways involve our members in the excitement of space exploration.

Incoming! Studying and avoiding near-Earth asteroids and comets

The Planetary Society returns to KPCC In Person's Crawford Family Forum for another Planetary Radio Live hosted by Mat Kaplan.

There’s a lot of work under way, from spacecraft that visit these miniature worlds to the hundreds of amateur astronomers who help find and track them.
